Upper Paugussett is Closed

Upper Paugussett got hammered, too!

After Sunday's ride at George C Waldo State Park I had to check out Upper Paugussett and it received it's fair share of blowdowns as well.  In fact there are there is one section of forest road that leads down to the lake that is blocked and three section on the Upper Gussy Trail that are blocked as well.

If it weren't for the poison ivy, this would be an easy fix

Forest Road to the Lake is blocked

This area is marked for a firewood cut and one of the trees was felled already

3/4s of mile into the Gussy, the first blockage - can be fixed with a hand saw

No impact to the trail here but up from here is an old dead tree about waist high
blocking off the whole trail.  Handsaw will fix it.

A Chainsaw is needed here!

Done right, could get another nice skinny out of it
