Rocky Neck State Park

Date: Oct 22, 2012
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Rocky Neck State Park
Town: East lyme
Trail Conditions: Dry and Leafy
Observations/Information: Well, Fall is here! trails are pretty dry for the most part but there is a pretty heavy coating of leaves making it a tad slippery at speed, use caution!

The State kept me at Rocky Neck an extra week to work on the trails after most of the other seasonal employees were laid off, unfortunately I only got to work on the main trails and even those didn't get 100% the attention I would have liked to give them. I did get to the little roller coaster (starting at the balance rock) and cut back the briars and got to the Yellow trail section on the edge of the 4 Mile River so you should be able to ride without too much branch whip ;)

Also got into the fields and though the big field cutter was down I used a weedwacker and got the grass cut back so you can actually ride/walk the trails.

there is still a couple branches left from last yr's storms that are stuck in the trees/brush on the side of the white trail, I cut back as much as I could of the brush so you can at least see them now, USE CAUTION in that area as they are right hat head height, hopefully the State Gnomes will get a chance to get out there with chain saws and clear them!
