Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Trout Brook
Trail Conditions: Good
Observations/Information: Paula and I rode Trout Brook on Saturday afternoon. We stuck to the less challenging southern section of the park, and rode the yellow, yellow/white, green, blue, and blue/white trails. It was dank and buggy, and the roots and rocks were slick. The trails were in good condition with no blockages and just a little mud at the stream crossings. NEMBA has ben working in here, rerouting and improving the trails. The reroute on the blue trail is holding up well, and there's a new reroute on the green trail (really a road) that takes it up out of the mud onto a nice, flowing (albeit short) benched singletrack section. I wish the whole trail was like this.
The trails at Trout Brook (at least the southern section) are old school singletrack, relatively smooth and fast with a fair amount of climbing-a lot of it fall line. The trails encourge a fast pace and can tire you out.
Towards the end of the ride a breeze came up, blew away the clouds and humid air, and made the riding a lot more comfortable.
