Gay City State Park

Date: 7/25/14
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Gay City State Park
Town: Glastonbury/Hebron
Trail Conditions: Good, clear, a few mud spots
Observations/Information: I participated in the Thursday RAW ride led by Al Tinti. We had six riders in total. We started at Blackledge Falls and rode into Gay City on the Cabin Trail, then did a loop in Gay City, and back into Blackledge on the Ribbon Trail. We did 11 miles in just under two hours.

Trails were all clear and, for the most part, dry, with just a few muddy spots and water in the stream crossings. The trails in Gay City and Blackledge were as they've been for years, wide and with multiple braids in places. Someone's been closing some of the braids in Gay City- a positive development, and also doing some rock armoring ant trail clearing.

The RAW rides are fun social no-drop steady-paced rides. Thanks to Al for leading it. Afterward we enjoyed refreshments in the parking lot (photo).
