Hop River State Rail Trail

Trail Name: Hop River State Rail Trail
Town: Vernon-Bolton-Andover
Trail Conditions: Very Good
Observations/Information: Great weather this morning for riding the Hop River Rail Trail. The Vernon DPW still clearing "widow-makers" and dangling branches near Center Rd. The much needed rain has packed the trail...finally no dust! Freshly potted plants and new mulch beds have been spread near Warren Ave. and Vernon Depot area, looks fantastic! I made a pit stop at the Depot, spoke with a gentleman training his 3 month old German Shepherd guide dog (named: Kiwi) for Fidelco. This is a great trail for pet socialization. Joggers and walkers out early.....managed to avoid 3 wild turkeys crossing just before Valley Falls area. Enjoy the weekend riding and Happy Mother's Day.
