Glad to see graffiti tag taken care of.
Date of Activity: 12/23/10
Condition of Trails(s): Frozen
Trail Ambassador Name: Mark Lurie

Observations: Lots of frost heaves and a few sections of ice over the trail but otherwise nice and dry.  The up-and-over near the swamp roller was obliterated and I don't understand why, unless it was done by the State or the Town.  Too bad.  Furthermore, it's sad that who ever did this chop job didn't have the common sense to make this into a skinny.  You could have tied it in the rock in the foreground and would have had a really fun riding feature.  

In the rocky/cliff areas there are many ice waterfalls, the most spectacular of which are at the old dam.  I don't  I have ever ridding across the spillway but before doing so I had to sweep a lot of glass away.  The trail at the base of the cliff, however, is completely iced over and you have to divert to the right of it through some soft ground and leaves.

New blazing on the NEMBA Trail

The new blazing of the red and yellow trails make following the trails really easy now and not at all confusing as it used to be.  The NEMBA river trail is exceptionally good right now and appears to have been recently reblazed, too.  There is a new tree down on the white trail but one it's an easy up.  Again, if someone goes in and does something with, be creative!
