    the section that had HUGE tree across stone wall was off Legend Wood Road, to get there take 49 to Johnson road (it's only about 100 yards long) take a right on Legend Wood, less than a mile it turns to dirt, follow that for a bit and take right at the fork. You will find several trees, couple small ones first, than a huge Pine(?)

    Should have used the big saw and brought some more gas. Got everything but the first tree as you come from hodge pond. Ran out of gas halfway through the second cut.

    The last one is still across the trail. My helper and me need a hand to push it out of the way. Maybe we should make it a log pile like in enduro cross.

    That tree's a big 'un. Your dog looks like he's standing at a bar, waiting for a drink.

    Ed finally finished his video of him on his new KTM. Amazing what a new bike can do for your riding abilities...

    Rode Pachaug on Sunday. The weather was perfect. Obviously, someone has done a lot of work to clear these trails of fallen timber.....thank you! I was surprised there were not more people riding on Sunday.

    As Woods Rooster said, a big thanks to all on the clearing of the downed trees. We did encounter the Swamp this pass Sunday that slowed the Enduro loop ride down a little.

    Yea, that's a good one to bypass next time. The regulars don't use that trail except in the driest of conditions, and there will still be water there. Good to see you went straight up the middle instead of off to the side. There's no hard bottom off to the sides.

    Back when I first rode the Pachaug loop in 1988 or thereabouts, I remember that water crossing being about half that size.
