Just saw an announcement of a trail cleanup day along the East Hartford section of the Hockanum River Trail this Saturday, June 1st. 9AM-noon. Meeting behind the East Hartford Town Hall on Main Street. It seems they are also having a competition as to who can make the best Gorp. I'm going to skip the trail mix challenge and try to weird out the AMC hikers with my trash bag toting bike trailer.
Huge fan of this trail and if you don't know about it yet, you're totally missing out. As one astute fellow and very occasional Beat Bike Blogger notes, the East Hartford section near Main Street is "like road bike single track." Also pretty nice for walking and running. Hidden gem. The Hockanum Trail (and associated linear park) is much longer than you would expect. Hopscotching its way along the Hockanum River valley all the way through Manchester.
June is a busy month. Just check out the Real Hartford list of fun stuff to do. Didn't purposefully post over Brendan's most entertaining video of a bicycle towing a load of tin cans. He likes river cleanups, so will likely approve.
