Many thanks to all those that showed up today to help me finish the Pond Brook Connector for the Gussy Trail. We built a new connector trail, benched the remaining sections and blocked off the old trail. Above is where the old trail went and the new benching. Attending today's event were Paula Burton, Eric Schonenberg, Rick Brodsky, Tren Spence, and Mark Lurie (me).
We transplanted a few shubs and trees that had to be removed from the connector from the trail head in order to break up the view and block the old trail. Below is the trail heading to the stream bed.
Rick and I cut a nice bench from the top the reroute to the section that benched earlier this month.
Paula and Eric built this little connector trail from the trail head to the stream crossing so that there is a smooth flow.
Afterwards, we did a loop in the Forest. After riding down the Gussy Trail both Rick and Tren headed back to the cars. I took Eric onto some more singletrack, the Mulikin Trail and then we headed back to the parking area.
