This is a lovely ride on gravel roads, including both class 4 and a CCC road through Willoughby State Forest. It starts at the north end of Lake Willoughby, traveling counterclockwise around the lake. The route heads to the west side of the lake and then by Wheeler Mountain on a class 4, goes out to Route 5 briefly, then the CCC road through the state forest to 5A. After a steep climb up to Newark Pond, the route climbs up a bit more on a class 4 road, then down to Long Pond and back out to Lake Willoughby.
Swimming at the lake afterwards!
Parking (includes toilets) at the beach at the north end of Lake Willoughby
