Quillinan Reservoir

Date: 10/26/14
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Quillinan Reservoir
Town: Seymour
Trail Conditions: Excellent

Observations/Information: I took a ride on the Quillinan Reservoir trails after trail work last Saturday along with Ian from Thule, his dog, and Bob on a fat bike. People at the Thule HQ in Seymour built and maintain these trails, with CCT NEMBA's help, and they did a fantastic job. The trails are well built, very well maintained, and continuously improved. We had just finished a rock armoring project that morning.

The trails are rocky and the terrain hilly. If you've ever ridden the XC loop at Millers Pond these trails will remind you of it, although they're a little more friendly to intermediates. There are some long climbs and descents. About the first 1/2 mile of trail had been raked clear of leaves, revealing the rocks and roots. The trail flows well, call it rocky flow. Some suspension will make the ride more comfortable.
