TM Report: George C Waldo State Park

Date: 12/12/2015
Report Type: TM Report
Trail Name: George C Waldo State Park
Town: Southbury
Trail Conditions: Leafy/Tacky

Before
Observations/Information: Took a quick ride - Where's Waldo, to Daffy, to Hunter's, and back up the fire road to the parking lot - before grabbing tools and a stack of 2x6s Paula had hanging around to redeck the little bridge at the bottom of Hunter's.

After
Before photo is from last weekend; between then and now, another board had broken through, so it was definitely time to replace the whole thing. (Most of 'em came up in pieces.)  Not perfect, but better.

The nails came out with me; the old wood I tossed in a loose pile up the hill at the base of the double tree. Next trip in, I'll have to bring something sufficiently large and heavy-duty to get them and carry them out.

Also of note: tree down across Daffy (eastern end). It looks like someone tried ramping it with some rocks (behind my rear tire).

I managed to get most of the old decking out of there this morning. There are still a couple of small pieces, but I could probably fit those in my pack next ride.
