Work continues on the Pond Brook Connector for the Gussy Trail on Sunday, August 23rd. Need to finish benching the trail reroute, create a bike trail connector from the trail head to the start of the reroute and block the old trail (scar).
Meet at the entrance to the Pond Brook State Boat Ramp (park back in the grass from the driveway) . I will be parked in the little parking at the trail head.
Meet a 8:30 AM.
Bring your Bike!
CT NEMBA's Big Ride Series continues after the TM with a Tour de North Hanover. 10 to 15+ miles in North Newtown.
