Cockaponset SF - Weber Woods section
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Cockaponset SF - Weber Woods section
Town: Clinton, Westbrook
Trail Conditions: Snow covered
Observations/Information: Started on the access forest road over to the lower green east to the blue; there was a ton of tracks showing activity since my snowshoe hike on Sunday- dogs and hikers, snowshoers, XC skiers...it looked like many decided to clear the cobwebs of New Year's Eve.
Someone on a quad took to the trails and made somewhat of a mess (photo) but was unable to cross the downed tree (photo) on the trail and they turned around; I plan on getting out there soon and cutting a small route through it but only enough for humans, bikes, and horses; made my way to the blue north and then to the white and came across a couple of XC skiers carrying their skis- poor conditions; jumped over to the yellow which was covered in tracks and detoured to the unmarked north which was untouched powder and headed to the green.
Continued west on the green and said "Hi" to a woman trail running in the opposite direction; not sure if more people are finding this trail system appealing or it is a one shot deal for New Years; back to the road and to home noticing the days are definitely getting longer.
