Moosalamoo (pronounced moose-ah-la-moo) is derived from the Abenaki word “Mozalômo” meaning “moose call, song or sound”

Moosalamoo Grand Tour

The Grand Tour is a 14-mile end-to-end introduction to the amazing recreational resources of the MNRA. Approximately 25 of the 70 miles of trails within MNRA are designed to be ridden either end-to-end or as smaller loops that give access to the more demanding trails of Chandler Ridge and Mt. Moosalamoo, which include beautiful vistas of Silver Lake, Lake Dunmore, and Branbury State Park. The Tour is primarily intermediate level, though more beginner-friendly sections include the Moosalamoo Campground loop and the trail from Branbury to Silver Lake.

While it would take a full day to walk this trek, on a mountain bike it is easily covered in three to four hours, including snack breaks to enjoy the views. It is mostly single track, old-school cross-country trails (no built berms!) but includes about 1.5 miles of Forest Road 32 north of Blueberry Hill Inn and Outdoor Center. The Tour was inspired by a Moosalamoo Association Board member who has been riding these trails for over 30 years with mountain bikers of all levels.
