TA Report: Upper Paugussett State Forest

TA Report: Upper Paugussett State Forest
Date of Activity: 12/18/2010
Trail Ambassador: Mark Lurie, Rick Brodsky
Trail Conditions: Excellent Early Winter Conditions.

Observations: 34 degrees at about 3:45. Got down to 30 degrees by the end. The Poly Brody fire road had several very, very icy spots that were a must hike-a-bike. But the Gussy trail was very dry and surprisingly cleared of leaves. Took the Polly Brody fire road up to the Upper Gussy trailhead. Saw one lady with 2 runty pitbulls off leash.  Later near the Gussy trailhead we saw one hiker who looked way under-dressed. All the fun features are in good shape. Some people have been making mods to the recent log cut between the first and second stream crossings. Didn't see any other riders. It was a good fast flowy ride for a winter day.
