TM Report: River Highlands State Park

Date: 10/3/2013
Report Type: TM Report:
Trail Name: River Highlands State Park
Town: Cromwell
Trail Conditions: Better
Observations/Information: Brother and I did some impromptu trail clearing at River Highlands Thursday afternoon. My plan was to reestablish the blue trail in the northern section of the park. This trail was pretty clear at each end but blocked in several places in the middle. It was passable but sketchy and had several quick and dirty reroutes around fallen trees. It wasn't much fun to ride, didn't get much use, and was becoming less and less of a trail. We cleaned up the reroutes and trimmed back brush growing into the corridor. The trail now flows uninterrupted from end to end. Hopefully more people will use it.

We also worked on the green trail through Sidewinder and the blue trail north of green, trimming brush and bent-over trees growing into the corridor.

River Highlands is a small place so every trail is important. Some of the lesser used trails are now more fun to ride and hopefully they'll get more use.
