Closed and unused road running the length of West Rock Ridge State Park. Access from the southern end, at the main park entrance, by coming through the driveway guardhouse and taking a right. Ride around or climb over the gate blocking motor vehicle access. Baldwin Drive is paved, but the surface is cracked and crumbling in spots, with weeds growing through. It's suitable for mountain and cross bikes.

Access Info

Access the southern end at the main entrance to West Rock Ridge State Park. Come in the driveway past the unattended guardhouse and take an immediate right. Go over or around the gate blocking cars from the road.
