The parking area is improved, the new trail section is flagged, and now it’s time to finish the construction of the CMC’s 5th trail (and 3rd on DEP land). This new trail will be a major addition to the hiking options in the Catskills. When finished, it will visit the summit site of a former fire tower, the site of a significant bluestone quarry and the impressive cliffs and caves that lie between.
The design of the trail will ascend to the summit gradually, providing a scenic and sustainable path for hikers. On this work day we will widen and level the path wherever the slope is too great for hiking comfortably. Sidehilling requires careful planning, special tools and precise work, so we will have tools available and will provide instruction in the methods and skills needed.
If you have a maddock with pick or a rouge hoe, please bring it along. Also bring plenty of water for a days work, lunch and snacks. Wear sturdy boots and comfortable clothing, preferably moisture wicking for your comfort.
No dogs allowed.
