TM Report: Cockaponset (Rocky Road )


Date: 5-12-2011
Report Type: TM Report
Trail Name: Rocky Road (Cockaponset)
Town: Chester
Trail Conditions: Boggy
Observations/Information: Scott H and I finished the 2nd stone slab bridge with ramp and armoring.

We had to discard the first stone and in the process inadvertently split it in half. The second stone which was a good ton was a bit difficult to set into place, but it worked well. We ended up using a half of the broken rock as a ramp leading up to the bridge. It's about 95% stabilized; I may look for a way to place pins or otherwise make the structure permanent to prevent destabilization over time.

The photos represent the finished product. The video represents the work we had done the previous build day.
