TA Report: Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods

Date of Activity:  November 21, 2010
Location:  Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods
Condition of Trail(s):  A little moist in low spots, slow due to leaves
Observations:  Started on the northern green and soon came across two dogs, then a woman on a horse, and we had a nice chat; continued on the Quinimay back around to the green down to the white and over by the beaver pond and ran into two guys hiking with their kids and two dogs; the beavers were obviously hard at work damning up the water flow because someone had constructed a walkway of boards across the normally just muddy section in order to get to the wooden bridge; back up to the green and two more sets of hikers each with two dogs; over to the parking lot where there were seven parked vehicles and an empty map box; orange to red and crossed route 145 to the lake parking lot for some great views; back around to some unmarked and spooked a hawk on a low branch that took flight about eight feet over my head; around and around for a while more until the light began to fade; for the most part all the trails were in really good shape, but slow because of the leaf cover; a real nice ride to wrap up the weekend.
