TA Report: Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods

Date of Activity:  October 12th
Location:  Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods
Condition of Trail(s):  Dry with lots of small blow down
Observations:  Just realized I had the wrong dates on my post yesterday (should have been 10/10 and 10/11); anyway, I parked solo at the west lot and filled the box with extra maps for the fall season, then hiked across the orange where I got a decent shot of the blue heron in flight in the horse pond; took the red down to the other side of the pond and on the way back noticed an unmarked that I never seen on my bike; it turned out to be a really nice route to the green and went through some cool terrain and by some old growth trees, both dead and alive; made a large loop of the trails all within the Westbrook portion of the forest and was able to really clean them up; came back around to the parking lot where my vehicle still stood alone; it’s amazing how much more you see at hiking speed rather than biking speed.
