Quillinan Reservoir

Date: Dec. 22, 2013
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Quillinan Reservoir
Town: Seymour
Trail Conditions: A bit soggy
Observations/Information: This was my first time in the Quillinan Reservoir area, but I plan to be back soon. The area is beautiful with large pine trees, interesting rock formations, and the reservoir. The trails are a mixture of wide woods roads with some single track. The main lower road is blazed Blue, and there were also trails blazed Green, Yellow, and Orange. Some industrious person had blown the leaves off some of the trails. I saw a map at the trailhead that is not on the state website, but I plan to contact the state to get it posted. In the meantime, an overview map (with no trails listed) may be found here: A map with lines drawn showing most of the trails may be found in this trails book:
The most visible entrance is on Rt. 313 in Seymour by Maple Street/Clinton Road. The trails were a bit soggy in the lower elevations, but dry higher up. I didn't have any tools, but I certainly tossed plenty of branches off to the side. There were a few blowdowns, but they were easy to get around.
