Upper Paugussett State Forest

Date: June 1, 2012
TA Report
Trail Name: Upper Paugussett State Forest
Town: Newtown
Trail Conditions: Ausgeseichtnet! (Outstanding)
Observations/Information: Rode up the Mulikin from Pond Brook to the Gussy and then back around on the Poly Brody back to the Mulikin and down back to Pond Brook. Nice 6 mile ride.  On the Mulikin I encountered two riders coming down the trail - looks like more people know about the Mulikin than just me, an LBS, and also some equestriennes.


The Gussy was riding really sweet but there were some fresh blowdowns that I tried to take care of. One is big Oak bough that was left over from the Snotober storm that finally came down that I will have to come back and fix due to it's size and the fact that I was riding sawless.


Surprisingly, Poly Brody was really dry. There were no beach goers parked in the lot, guess it was too cold to swim.
