CT NEMBA & REI West Hartford Trail Maintenance Day at Penwood State Park

We came, we re-routed, and we benched!  CT NEMBA and REI joined up to do trail work at Penwood State Park on crisp, cool, windy fall Saturday.  The entire CT NEMBA board was present along with volunteers from REI's West Hartford store employees and even some customers came out.  We set out to do two projects:  (1) a re-route on the Yellow trail (map above) and (2) rock armoring on an unmarked trail in the back of park.  Paula led the rerouting efforts which most of the volunteers helped out with, while Ryan and Art led the armoring project.

Ryan explains the Circle of Death

Paula briefs everyone on the projects

Cleanup was pretty fast - only one tool was lost.  If anyone comes across a grading rake, let me know

Lunch was donated by the Flatbread Company of Avon
