Quillinan Reservoir

Date: 1/31/2015
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Quillinan Reservoir
Town: Seymour/Ansonia
Trail Conditions: Snowy/Frozen ***


Observations/Information: I took a (very) quick sunrise ride @ Quillinan: purple up from the Rimmon lot to the four-way purple junction, right and down to the fire road, then back to the lot. (Hey, I said it was quick.)

Only complaint was some bumpiness due to frozen boot tracks, and some icy patches here and there. TM = kicking the odd branch off trail.  Some hikers (not us folk) made a couple of shortcuts.

One item of note: logging adjacent to the fire road by the spur that runs out to Clinton Rd. (i.e. by the double logover, which BTW is now just a single logover).  Also, the purple trail teepee is flat (and has an odd tote that looks like it contains remnants of someone's picnic lunch).


*** Temps are coming up rapidly and will likely stay warm over the next few days, so if you haven't gotten today's ride in by now, you're probably SOL until late next week or the weekend.
