Note: site is still experimental in format, and the experiment didn't work - so I'm converting it to a platform I prefer (LAMP).... Please wait for more consistent css layout. I’ve been mountain biking, hiking, exploring and spending a good part of my last twenty years in this 1,500 acre patch of land in Guilford, CT. I average at least one day a week in here year-round. Here’s all I know, and much of what I don’t. I’ll try to point out conjecture from facts where I can.
Through all that time spent here, I thought it was about time I document and share what I know about this cool and mysterious place, as well as publish my suppositions about many mysteries in hopes that you people can set me straight.
This site is in partial thanks to The Guilford Land Trust. Many of these places, appear to be unknown to those I’ve spoke with who are part of the Land Trust. A few are known as curiosities but undocumented. If I provide what I know here, we can document and learn more about some of my favorite trails, caves, and other places. Maybe someday it will provide an insight into biking as well for those in the future who find and wonder about the broken mountain bike parts they may find, as I have wondered about the arrowheads and other artifacts of past inhabitants.
People do more than mountain bike and hike in Westwoods. There are bird watchers, letterboxers, geo-cachers, and more activities than you can imagine. If you are planning your first outing to Westwoods, I recommend aWestwoods trail map. (Note: More detailed maps are available at Bishops Orchards in Guilford.)
