TM Report: Bluff Point State Park

Date: 8/12/2013
Report Type: TM Report:
Trail Name: Bluff Point State Park
Town: Groton
Trail Conditions: Getting better...
Observations/Information: Met up with Mark Sponauer this afternoon to tackle the tree removal that was supposed to happen on Friday. Equipment in hand we hiked out to the first tree. Once there we were dealt an unexpected uncooperative chainsaw. Undaunted Mark hoofed it back to the parking lot to grab his Jedi/ninja/samurai saw. Several quarts of sweat later we (Mark mostly) had the tree in pieces and out of the trail. Another hike to the far reaches of the park to confirm what I suspected...the second tree was too big for the hand saw. It was a nice evening so I decided to stay and do some gardening on sections of trail at the tail end of the MBAS loop and close to the parking lot.
