Can anybody share a GPS address to get to Pachaug where I can park and head to the trails?

So that would be 219 Spaulding Road that I should type into the GPS in my car and I'm guessing one parks on the lot inside the red circle and rides off on the trail to the right (where the red arrow is):

There's a link to a map in my sig. I suggest studying it well. There's a good number of road sections that connect the trails.

Easy now! This is a respectable forum!

Looks like I have some free time on Sunday, so I'm going to finally check it out. What time are planning on being there? Warning: I have no roll-chart, no GPS, and no clue of the area - but I have a map!

Let's meet at the lot on Sunday at 10AM. It'll take me 2 hours to get there from Danbury. I have no GPS, no roll chart and never been there before but we will find our way back home

Sounds perfect. I'll be on the KTM 690, looking like an idiot with my FF street helmet (unless I can sneak to the motorcycle shop on Saturday...)

Am I the only one who keeps trying to drag that map and look down trail?

Hey! Good news... I unpacked one of the boxes from the move and found my Garmin GPSmap 60Cx. I already downloaded the maps for New England. Now I need to figure out how to load the Pachaug Trails onto the map

Thanks for the tip! I printed akarob's map to know where to cut off early in case we need to.

Im temped to show up and give you guys the guided tour, but im not committing. I did the loop last weekend with a good pack of the regulars. There's also a NETRA Enduro that my slacking ass should rightfully be at too. We will have to see how my Saturday goes. Pencil me in for a flaky maybe. Despite all the loose rocks and what not, I do love to ride the loop. Its a hell of a ride.
