Hartman Park

Date: Jan 1 2014
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Hartman Park
Town: Lyme
Trail Conditions: Frozen, frost pop and ice in some places
Observations/Information: Cory posted up on Facebook that he was riding at Hartman park and Steve, Glenn and myself showed up.. It was COLD!! vey cold but we rode through it! There are a few trees down here and there that we'll try and get out there and cut out but it's not looking like it'll happen any time soon with the snow reported to arrive tonight and tomorrow. I did a few short cuts as I needed to keep it light on my knee and cut off probably 2-3 miles of the red trail they went on and met them up on the top of the orange trail at the high point of the power lines..
Did notice that a few areas we try and close off do to erosion and swampy conditions that people keep opening back up. gunna have to talk to the land managers and see if and what they want to do about it. Otherwise the place seems like it's in good condition... forgot just how rough and on the same note how fun it is to ride there.
Glen whacked his chainring and busted a chain, which is funny as it's usually Single speeds that go for ever and the geared guys who have the issues... not this trip ...
Got a few 1/2 decent vid shots I made the goofy movie from.
