Explore the trails around an old historic mansion
Cranbury Park used to be a private estate. It is now open to the public and a popular picnicking spot. The main attraction is a historic mansion on the property. Though there aren't a lot of trails, several loops around the mansion can be a fun ride. The better trails are out away from the mansion. Look out for hikers.
How to get there:
From Norwalk, go North on Route 7 Turn right onto Kensett Street. Follow Kensett for about a mile to a stop sign at the end of the road. Cranbury Park is across the street.
Site of Connecticut's oldest mountain bike race, The Jack Rabbit Run.
