This is a fun route that optimizes the climbing and fast and flowy downhills offered by the Goat Hill Trail Network.

Start at the Hartford Ave East Parking lot, go up the Blackstone River Trail. At the end of the trail, turn left onto the Northern Access Trail, bypass the Upper Goat Hill turn off to the left until you get to a gravel road, follow the gravel road until you get to the next access trail on the left which is Goat Hill North Access. Turn left onto this trail and about fifty yards in you will come to the North Junction waypoint, From this point The Greenway Trail is to your left and Reload is to your right.


Turn right onto Reload. Go all the way up to the Upper Junction. Along Reload be careful not to cross over onto Greenway where the trails pass very near each other and be careful to stay on Reload until you get to the top. There are a few false links to avoid. When you get to the Upper Junction, Go down WindUP to where it joins again joins Reload Turn right onto Reload and go back up to the Upper Junction.

Now go down The Greenway Trail (taking in Bonespur).

When you get back to the North Junction at the bottom of the Greenway, go back up Reload[/L] to the Upper Junction.


From there go down Billy Goat to the South Junction.


From here take Down & Out back to the parking lot from where you started.

This is an awesome route that optimizes the great flowy downhill trails offered by Goat Hill, and using Reload for the climbs. Withh this route you will fly down all three the great downhill trails - Wind UP, Greenway and Billy Goat. Reload is the easiest climb to the top.
