Rocky Neck State Park

Date: Feb 2, 2013
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Rocky Neck State Park
Town: East Lyme
Trail Conditions: good, frozen

Observations/Information: 4 of us meet up at the lot and took off thru the upper field and headed down to the Shipyard field. The State Gnomes had been in and mowed the upper field and areas around, the tractor left some deep ruts right at the entrance but they really did a good job cutting back the grass and brush. Really cold out so we did a quick spin and actually headed back to the cars so I could throw my gloves on the heater for a minute. After a quick warm up we were all good to go and rode back into the woods. The Gnomes had been really busy and had pretty much cleared all the down fall from the last wind storms and even the really large older stuff from the hurricane at everyone had been just going around. There was one trail that's un-marked that the State doesn't care for and right at the beginning  was a large branch down so we took care of it.

Got down into the beach parking lot and decided we were all doing good so we took an extra trip over to Ravenwoods next door. Definitely get a good warm up climbing that hill.!!

Got back and visited Devine Wine...
pretty sure the vote goes to the Birkshire Brewing's Cabin Fever
