Very sad news. Riding on the trails with my sons is a life time memory. I hope we can continue riding there. It’s a bond of family memories.
I have been riding at Thomaston Dam since late 2016. Thanks to the Army Corps of Engineers and the Pathfinders Motorcycle club, it is the only public place available to ride a registered trail bike in Connecticut.
It has been a great recreation area for learning the sport and fortunately for me also close by. Hundreds of trail users would be displaced if a walking path were to encroach on the enduro loop trails.
Where will riders go if the trail is lost? Almost every rail to trail walking system in the state is only utilized in or near the city centers. The actual distances between towns are rarely used. Aren’t there walking trails everywhere near Thomaston, including park systems?
