      Mooween State Park in Lebanon, CT is home to southeast Connecticut’s newest trail system. Set on the shores of Red Cedar Lake, the former summer camp for boys provides a variety of terrain for riders of all abilities. Throughout the fall and winter of 2016, a dedicated crew of trail builders roughed in and sculpted a network of nearly 10 miles of singletrack trails. Existing double track, park roads and the new flowing beginner and intermediate level trails wind through stone walls and the old abandoned summer camp. Along the way are opportunities to play on advanced technical features including giant boulders, steep rollers, log skinnies and 3 foot hucks.

      There are currently a few small parking areas to access the trails from. A 10+ car parking area is planned for the future.
      The “Boat Launch” (166 Camp Mooween Rd, Lebanon CT) – DO NOT BLOCK THE GATE From the parking area ride across the dam. Take the first left up a small rise on the double track. The trail crosses the double track about 100 feet after the turn. The loop is bi-directional but flows more naturally ridden clockwise. The builders suggest you take a left onto the Red Trail.
      The “Scott Hill Rd Gate” (299 Scott Hill Rd, Lebanon CT) – There is room for several cars at this pull off. Ride down the park road along the lake, about 2/3 of a mile. Just before you get to the dam make a right onto the double track up the small rise. The Red Trail will be on your left.
      The “Galvanized Gate” (167 Scott Hill Rd, Lebanon CT) – Only room for a couple cars here. Ride up the double track a little way. The Yellow Trail crosses almost immediately. The loop is bi-directional but flows more naturally ridden clockwise, so turn left onto the trail.

      Hunting is allowed at Mooween State Park. During hunting season (mid-September to December 31) please avoid riding during the week and on Saturdays. There is no hunting on state lands on Sundays.
