Upper Paugussett State Forest

These logs have been sitting here for months
Date: 5/07/2013
Report Type: TM Report:
Trail Name: Upper Paugussett State Forest
Town: Newtown, CT
Trail Conditions: Bone Dry
Observations/Information: The only chance I have this weekend to do clear a blowdown on the Upper Gussy was early Tuesday morning.

While riding up the Forest Road I came across a hunter and we chatted a bit. Turns out Spring Turkey season is from April 25th to May 25th so if you are going to ride Upper P early in the morning I suggest that you wear something bright, maybe ride with a bell, and make sure your brakes don't squeak!

I started work on the blowdown and was able to get most of the small and medium stuff cleared but the big stuff is going to require a chainsaw, however, it's probably unnecessary at this point because it's clear enough to ride past.

Might make a nice skinny, skinny at some point. Did some clipping here and there along the rest of the trail.
