Saxon Hill Park has an immensely popular 3-mile loop dubbed "Flo." New mountain bikers can get a handle on the basics of mountain biking, while experts can come let it all hang out on a loop that is fast, swoopy, and characterized by great flow. Look for the new trail, "MoFlo," on the right hand side of the road, right beyond the Thompson Drive gate. "MoFlo" will take you to "Flo" in grand flow-some style. Flo will take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour to ride depending on the skill of the rider. The loop was designed to be ridden in a clockwise direction, but can be ridden in the opposite direction; this is the more challenging option. Flo is rated as an easier intermediate trail, but is also a great place to bring eager new riders, as they can be assured of leaving with a big smile on their face.

Trailhead Information

Park at the end of Saxon Hill Road. Turn at Saxon Hill Auto off of Route 15 and bear right until you reach the gate. This very small parking area is the only spot approved by the Town of Essex to park for access to the Saxon Hill trail network. There is space for 2 or 3 cars without blocking the private driveway, so please carpool or ride your bike to the trailhead! Thanks for your respect of the neighbors.

Trail users are asked not to park on Thompson Drive because access to the trail from there is across private land. Please respect landowner wishes and park at the end of Saxon Hill Road instead.
