A search for wild grape seeds on a hidden CT hiking trail in Winchester

Evandra and I went on a search for wild grape seeds on a little-known hiking trail in CT this weekend. My previous reconnaissance in September 2018 held that this might be a great spot to recover some seeds from a vine in the area. None of my trail apps show this as an active trail, however it has markers and offers some lovely views of the Mad River, a reservoir, and interesting garbage left at the trail head.

If you’re looking for the trail head, you can find it on this map.

We did find one shriveled grape on the vine. Unfortunately, the seeds were not viable. Believe me, I tried. I’m looking forward to September for a harvest of good grapes and seeds.
