TA Report: Upper Paugussett State Forest

Blowdown clearing at the Cleavage Reroute
Date: 8/19/2011
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Upper Paugussett State Forest
Town: Newtown, CT
Trail Conditions: Perfect for riding

Observations/Information: Started at the Boat Ramp and rode up to the trail head. The Gussy was really nice but had to clear some little blow downs here and there. The Gussy is getting a lot of action lately.  A local bike shop has found it and they are doing rides from time to time on it.  Might try to get a weekly shop ride going.  Heading back on the Mulikin I found a reroute forming around the big blowdown after the stream crossing. Just as I was leaving the forest it started to rain.
