A group of intrepid, if not loony, Shelton Trail Committee members embarked on an expedition rivaling the similar Lewis and Clark picnic of years gone by. Only this group included Ryan Gallagher, a student of committee psychology who switched majors shortly after witnessing the testing of group dynamics under stress. The purpose of this outing was to roughly lay out a route that will accommodate hikers, bikers, casual strollers and marathon runners and at the same time be handicap accessible.

when they return to the parking area.
