      At 1529 acres the Nathan Hale State Forest offers over 25 miles of trails. 32 trails in all.
      They range in difficulty from reasonably flat beginner trails, marked in green on the MAP above, to blue intermediate trails, to black challenging trails.
      It's a really fun place to ride in places heavilly wooded. In other places there are managed fields of shrubs and brush.
      The town of Coventry uses 57 acres as a town park.
      Don't expect to cover all of the forest's trails in one outing.
      But don't worry about it - you will come back.
