George C Waldo State Park

Date: 12/28/2015
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: George C Waldo State Park
Town: Southbury
Trail Conditions: Fine: leafy, some small branches

Observations/Information: Quick AM ride: WW -> Daffy -> Hunters -> WW -> Daffy (other end) -> Hunters -> Fire Road and done.

Someone's been doing some skidding, as evidenced by kicked-up leaves here and there.

TM consisted of tossing branches off trail, except for a tree that came down with the canopy directly atop one of the stone wall crossings on the west side of Daffy. I cut it back sufficiently it's no longer impeding the trail.

(The log across the eastern end of Daffy is still there, and it looks like someone has added to the ramping.)

Saw one other rider on the way out (and lent my pump).

Next trip in I should probably do some lopping - I kept getting hit in the glasses by some pesky little branches. Also, post-thaw we'll probably need to address some of the stone wall crossings, as some have loose/wobbly stones.
