Trumbull-Pequonnock 7-10-10

Saturday, July 10th, 2010
Condition of Trails: Nasty humid and buggy
Trail Ambassador Name: Rich C

Off to a late start and once I arrived at the Daniels Farm Parking lot, the dark thunderheads in the sky had me spooked a bit. It rained a bit while in the park but not enough to muddy the trails or--unfortunately--clear the oppressive muggy air.
Rode in and basically focused on the Red and Yellow blazing in the south end. I greyed out where the yellow blazes were no longer valid and added yellow blazing on missing sections. The rooty section -- bordering the wetlands and
the twisty singletrack on the north side of the fireroad needed yellow as well. The trail is now blazed all the way to the end in the north with the exception of a section near the start in the south end that overlaps and cris crosses the Black Dot side trail.
Also spent some time scoping out in further detail, sections of the red that will be undergoing fall line reroutes. In my explorations thru the woods I discovered more caves. Mammoth granite outcroppings dot the park always offering surprises to the curious...
