TA Report: Upper Paugussett State Forest

Date: 7/24/2012
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Upper Paugussett State Forest
Town: Newtown
Trail Conditions: Greasy
Observations/Information: Headed out to Upper Paugussett and got caught in a brief shower that turned the whole place into a tropical rain forest.


Wearing my new CTNEMBA Trail Ambassador Jersey, which came out really nice and fits me well, I rode the Poly Brody for the first time in two months and notice quite a few changes. Apparently, the State has been doing some road work on the Forest Road, widening it some spots and filling in the ruts in others.

Once I got on the Gussy I found fresh tire tracks and it appears someone else was on the trail. Actually two someones that I ran into down by the ROW.

I cleared some branches on the trail but the main reason I went out was to block a new trail someone had created that started out flat but then went into a fall line descent that would only mean folly once erosion started.
