Ridge Hill Reservation after Sandy

Garage near the picnic area, Ridge Hill Reservation. A nice new hole in the roof.
I walked "my" (trail steward) trails at Ridge Hill Reservation on Saturday to see what sort of damage Sandy caused. Initially I thought we had gotten off pretty well. Then I tried the Chestnut and North Trails. Three enormous trees had fallen completely blocking passage (OK I climbed my way through...)

Here are a couple from the North Trail.

Obviously removing these is not a high priority for the town right now. So for the near future you might want to steer clear of this area. [UPDATE: The trees have not been entirely cleared but chainsaws have cleared path-ways through these obstacles.]
