After designing a preliminary trail mark logo for the trail we used a lasercutter at MakeHaven to create many copies on wood.

Then it was out to blaze the trail with volunteers. We started at the tidal gate and cleared brush a good way down toward the middle of the CT Transit building.

Ben got a good workout chopping down the knot weed stalks.

Although there is much more clearing and trash pickup to do the area really showed its potential as a trail and had beautiful views juxtaposing of urban and natural features.

On the way back we hung temporary signs to show the path we envision the trail to follow.

At the entrance we posted our most colorful marker to welcome the observant to the fledgling trail.
