TA Report: Collis P Huntington SP

Great day to be single speeding despite the
tragedy that befell our community on the previous day

Date: 12/15/2012
Report Type: TA/TM Report
Trail Name: Collis P Huntington SP
Town: Bethel/Redding
Trail Conditions: Hoar Frost, slick, and a little muddy

That doesn't look like Fat Bike Tracks

Observations/Information: Trails at Huntington show signs of many riders hitting this place, though I didn't see any riders on the trail. A lot of walkers and runners, though. The frost heaves coming with the colder weather are turning to mush.  Looks like someone is riding a motorcycle on the carriage roads


A few trees down here and there since Hurricane Sandy that are in hard to reach areas.

Someone foot raked a small alternative route on the Glacial Erratic which I blocked by throwing sticks and leaves on. If it were longer and swoopier it would make sense but it wasn't and just plain stupid.

Also on the Glacial Erratic there was a mud pit forming on one the turns just south of Dave Francefort's Spine Line creation. 

There were no nearby rock stores so I scoured the area for flatties to armor it up.

Coming off of Rock & Roll and heading back up the carriage road into the lot I noticed a car with the back window open. There have been a rash of break ins at the Upper D-Town lot and I happen to notice a woman who started jogging from the lot with a dog as I passed by. I turned around and caught up with her and informed her that her car window was open and also told her about the recent break ins. She thanked me and said not to worry because she would be out for a 15 minute run

I wore Yellow and Blue in Solidarity for Newtown, CT
