Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Hop River State Rail Trail
Town: Manchester, Vernon, Bolton
Trail Conditions: Excellent
Observations/Information: Started at trailhead in Colonial Rd lot, easy riding through Manchester and Vernon. Trail in excellent condition, bikers will not encounter twigs, leaves, other debris. The comfortable weather temps make for "trail traffic" with joggers, walkers, dogs, horses, and cyclists.
I met Marjorie from South Carolina (visiting her daughter Vicky). They were breaking at Steele's Crossing. Looking to ride further, I suggested they ride to check out the relatively new RT 316 Bridge. It seemed to work out and off they rode.
