View Full Version : salty report 4/16

Checked out the north side this afternoon. Trails were very rideable and firm considering the recent rains. Some trails to avoid: Mt. Tom Trail (between Barber Trail and Old Ten Rod Road), Sand Hill Trail and Barber Trail. Barber Trail isn't too bad just lots of wet spots. Lots of localized trail damage caused by all the rainfall.
Upcoming weather forecast calls for lots of sun and increasing temps! Enjoy.

Salty thanks for the report! I may be out in Arcadia on Sunday.

I rode MT Tom and the 165 trail and checked in on our project on Sand Hill on Sunday. Mt Tom and 165 are pretty dry, just some deep mud holes courtesy of MX'ers. I saw three of 'em out on MT Tom. I rode the yellow blazed trail out to the pond and came back by the kids fishing pond (fun descent, and it's in really good shape). Overall I was happily surprised at how dried out the north side was.

Went out Saturday on the south side of 165- Browning Mill area. Trails were outstanding, a few mud puddles, the brooks and strams were running pretty fast, Overall A REAL NICE DAY. ;D Looks like the same "CHEAP BASTARD" struck again- thinks the railing at Roaring Brook Pond would look a whole lot better at his shack. This is the second or third time someone has stolen that Railing- maybe the rangers could rig up a land mine or two. :-[ :'( >:( >:(

Also checked the Ben Utter Trail which runs from Austin Farm Road to Escoheag Hill Road. 3 wet sections: the first is just after the first bridge going towards Escoheag Hill. Section of trail about 50 ft long under water. The 2nd section is normally wet this time of year and runs about 150 ft. or so. You can walk around it on the left side. The 3rd section is coming down the hill as you climb up near the hut. I tried to divert the water off of the trail but didn't have any tools with me so not sure if I did much good. Otherwise things are looking great for now. Enjoy...
