Rockland Preserve

Date: June 29, 2014
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Rockland Preserve
Town: Madison
Trail Conditions: Good, but very dry
Observations/Information: Rode Rockland w/ the bro on Sunday. We parked at the upper lot on Renee's Way. We rode Thunderdome and beyond, before working our way down to the bottom of the hill, and back up East Loop, and then the new Bambi trail. Trails were clear, but the soil was almost totally dry, with just moisture left to keep dust down. This affected traction. The trails could use some rain. Evidence of new benching on East Loop. Well done, still a little soft.

On the way out we stopped at the (very dusty) Rt. 79 lot a pulled out some thorns that were growing into the trail, just in from the lot.
