Pachaug Trail Is Blocked

I rode the loop with a couple guys Friday and we came across a yellow caution tape guarding a trail FILLED with freshly cut limbs. There were a LOT. It was deliberate and it will take a couple guys hours to clean this mess up - chainsaws will be necessary.

Here are some pictures.

This one is of the caution tape.



Same basic picture here but I made sure you could see the red trail marker arrow is visible. It's not "photoshopped" or pasted in there, the trail is actually marked right there.



It's hard to see the trail in this picture but it goes from the bottom left corner up towards the top right - totally covered in cut trees.



The blockage is close to the end of the loop in the Mount Misery section. To pass it we turned around and took the first trail on the left. You will shortly come to an 4-way intersection of trails. Take a left here and it'll put you back on the marked trail.

I don't mind helping with the clean up when I'm not working my 9 to 5. What a mess. Someone went through a LOT of effort to close this trail. I can't imagine why someone would do this to a legal trail in the middle of the woods.

Did you notify the forest headquarters also?
Gotta love it, we destroy land, but cutting down live trees to close a trail is totally fine...UGH

I think I might be up for going out again Sunday. I will try to locate the blocked path more exactly on a map within a day or so.

Not sure exactly where on the trail this is, but I don't think this is random "vandalism". Looks like survey tape on some of the trees still standing, so it might be some kind of approved clearing. Best to check with the forest HQ before cutting anything up.
