Condition of Trail: A few damp spots, a few mud puddles, a few puddles, otherwise in good shape

Trail Ambassador Name: Ed Perten, Mark Lurie

Town: Stratford
Location: Roosevelt Forest

How did you use the trail?: Mountain bike riding
What was the time of day?: Morning

Trail(s) Ridden: Red, Blue, Green, White, Yellow, and unmarked

Duration (Hours): 2
Distance (Miles): 7

Observations: We scouted the area for possible CT NEMBA involvement, there appear to be several possibilities where we might be able to do some improvements here and there. This is a great place for a quick ride if you are in the area. More geared towards the beginning rider but an intermediate rider would have a lot of fun in here, too. All the stream crossings that are not bridged need to be armored. There are some fall line trails that should get re-routed and benched, and rather cutting through the swamp in the picture above maybe we could reroute the trail around the swamp.

At a snack break Ed bit into a gummy snack and broke a temporary tooth cap. Yikes! Good thing he had plans to see the barber on Monday!
