Naugatuck State Forest

Date: 6/8/2014
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Naugatuck State Forest
Town: Oxford/Beacon Falls
Trail Conditions: Par for Naugy - still some wet spots
Observations/Information: Did my quick double-loop this morning:

Maybe it's me, or the fact that I've been riding more decent trails lately, but it seems the general washed-outness is getting worse. The active watercourse between where the singletrack bypass emerges and the power line crossing on the trail north of Res 2 is still an active watercourse (and wet down to and past the powerlines). Also still plenty of wet east of Res 1.

TM: removed a downed tree halfway into the fire road east of Res 4. Also a bit of lopping here and there, and kicking branch litter off trail. There's a big tree down across the fire road that runs from Res 2 to the west side of Res 3 (right by the double culvert) - too big for my tools. (Said double culvert is beginning to silt in again, though it isn't as bad as it was last year.)

Met a few dog-walkers. No bikes (but someone's leaving ruts in the Res 1 wet). Beautiful morning.
