TA Report: River Highlands SP

Date: 4/10(hike) -  4/11 (bike)
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: River Highlands SP
Town: Cromwell
Trail Conditions: Dry, Leafy, Many acorns
Observations/Information: Recon hike...
I'm trying to learn this place as I look for new evening choices. Trails were in pretty good shape, except for some awful blazing in some spots. The leaves made some lesser used trails hard to follow.
First ride here for me. Encountered several friendly dog walkers. The river looked great in low fog from the ridge! Don't trust the blaze colors on the DEP website map. The wood sign in the parking lot is more accurate. Trails looked good, but it appears that someone hade a fantastic time in the parking lot during the night.
