Re routing the Mulikin Trail Continues

Saturday's forecast was for rain all day and the True to Brew Ride I was supposed to go on was cancelled.  However, the rain didn't come to Southwestern Connecticut till about 10:30 am. Rather than ride, I headed out to Upper Paugussett State Forest to continue the work I am doing on the Upper Mulikin Trail. 

I have cut two sections of the reroute and today I did the third. It is probably the longest section, approximately .6 miles and 5 turns in it. It also goes through a break in a rock wall.

A nice rock spine next to the trail will be in the making as well. While doing this work I cut out a ton of barberry plants, which are invasive and harbor ticks.

Looking down through the wall break. There's plenty of rocks to make a real cool feature here.  I am going to try and finish cutting out the trail myself and then have a trail workday, probably on Saturday, June 30th, provided that I get enough help should be able to open this up for use.

The three sections that I have cleared are from left to right and there are five more to go.  However, I think those are going to go a lot faster. There are a couple of rollers that will open up with this re-route, too.
