There are two trails off of Maltbie Rd that are kind of sketchy descents but come together at a feeder trail. It's a wide trail that most go back to Maltbie Road, only higher up. Not sure I would want to short cut Maltbie because it's a great road to ride.
The tow feeder trails hit a nice wide trail that parallels Maltbie for a bit before turning west. Eventually it climbs subtly and then you have a decision to make. Descend to the muddy stream trail, keep descending towards the pond, or head back on yet another trail that might end up in someone's backyard. There is a horse farm on Aunt Park which leads me to think there is a trail from that back of that property that leads here.
If you want to get to Aunt Park, there is no getting around the stream and hike-a-bike, which is unfortunate because this could be a really great way to ride.
Bug bitten, scratched from pricker bushes and completely drenched in sweat I made my way over to Ox Hill and and then Beaver Dam, two great dirt roads in Newtown.
Heading to the Bentagrass cut through I stopped at Brad's house. He and Dave were trying to fix his lawn tractor, or I should say Dave was taking it apart and Brad was watching while drinking beer. Brad offered me a glass of a strong IPA that I knew would make riding home interesting, as well as a new tire to try on the CAADx.
