Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Rocky Neck State Park
Town: East Lyme
Trail Conditions: Friggin Awesome, never got all the rain most of the State got so trails are dry!!
Observations/Information: Was going to do Laundry all day but decided I could get a quick rip around Rocky Neck between loads and before it got too warm. SOO glad I went!!
BIG CAUTION ON THE SWAMP (white) TRAIL!!!
just after you cross the bridge, and take the right hand turn toward the swamp the long swooping left arch there is a low hanging branch all covered with leaves. Well you think you can just duck through like normal but on the far side there is another fallen branch someone cut, but not high enough and if you are blasting down the trail like I was you're going to get a major whack in the head!! THANK GOD FOR HELMETS!!!
Other than that it's about the best ride I've done all yr. Weather was about as perfect as it gets. Just a light breeze to keep the bungie bugs away, almost zero humidity... If it weren't for a bit of neck and head ache from the hit I'd feel better than I have in a long time ;)
