New England Trail from rt 68 to rt 66 (across from the Guida's Diner). Crosses the top of Powder Ridge. Multiple hike-a-bikes in either direction both up and down, some quad damage. Exercise caution when riding this trail as there are many high speed sections along the edge of cliffs. Trail is blazed with blue rectangles. There's a quad trail that runs parallel to the main trail, often intersecting and overlapping.

Disclaimer

Use extreme caution when riding this trail. There are multiple opportunities to ride off a cliff

       Trails are very rocky threw out the park. Definitely very rough riding at points but great way to gain experience. Still a work in progress place but seems to be always improving.
