** NEW IN 2015: With the addition of the old Sunrise Resort, there are now more driving trails. Some of the trails have been cleared and improved with the help of CVDC club members. This is a local venue with easy access and will be a benefit to *all* horse people, drivers and riders, now and well into the future. We want to make our presence and interest apparent to the State through frequent and respectful use and encourage you to join us on our club outings.

Machimoodus is a state park located in village of Moodus, which is part of the town of East Haddam, Connecticut. It consists of the former Echo Farm and the former Sunrise Resort, purchased in late 2008. Machimoodus has trails that follow old roads and pathways in a scenic area with great views of the Salmon and Moodus Rivers, quarries and swamps. Its a great location for bird watching, fishing, hiking and horseback riding and driving.

Other Info
Our first drive of the 2010 season will be at Machimoodus State Pack in East Haddam, Ct. It will be on Saturday April 24th with drive out at 11AM. The rain date is on the next day, Sunday April 25. The footing should be good and the drive is relatively short. Ride or drive your horse but please make sure your equine is canine friendly as this is a popular dog walking venue. Do not park in the Machimoodus Parking lot. Instead drive into the wide driveway just past the main entrance- it used to belong to Sunrise Resort. Bring your lunch and water for your horse. Richard Mangino 203-272-5257 and Kathie Gregory 860-228-3801 can answer any questions.
