      Connecticut is rich with many mountain biking options, mainly of the inimitable "New England Tech" style.

      The state is organized into the eight official state counties: Fairfield County, New Haven County, Middlesex County and New London County along the coast of the Long Island Sound, and Litchfield County, Hartford County, Tolland County and Windham County inland along the Massachusetts border. All towns in each county is listed, irrespective if they have trails mapped on Trailforks or not.

      Connecticut has a very active mountain biking community, with the lead taken by the six Connecticut Chapters of the New England Mountain Biking Association (NEMBA). The Chapters are listed below and the links to the Facebook page for each chapter can be found in the links below.

      Fairfield County NEMBA - Fairfield County
      Housatonic Valley NEMBA - The Housatonic Valley which stretches from the southern part of Litchfield County along the western edge of New Haven County, down to the Long Island Sound.
      Northwest Ct NEMBA - Litchfield County and western parts of Hartford County
      Central Ct NEMBA - Central Hartford County, Eastern half of New Haven County, Middlesex County and western edge of Tolland County
      Quiet Corner NEMBA - Tolland County and Windham County
      Southeastern Ct NEMBA - New London County
