Mostly Dry, Some Mud - I've done a lot of this trail from Meriden up to Farmington this time I started at Route 44 down to Bristol Route 6 this is a terrible section it has you going on the powerlines that are not marked at all. It starts out ok and you think it's going good till you get to a gravel road that takes you to the power lines that are getting new poles and roads and that's it till you get to the west Hartford Reservoir area. But those trails and roads are also getting reworked. the trail cuts back up to the power lines again and it's supposed to go across to the other side but the Trail is so overgrown that you can't find it so you walk back down the powerlines to the road (old Mountain RD ) go left at the fence till you can get out and walk back up the road till you find the trail on the other side of the street from there to RT 6 it's an ok hike in the woods . Some over grown spots..
