The CMC’s Catskills Roving Trail Crew will be working with the Rip van Winkle Hikers on the western end of the Black Dome Range Trail next. Join us for this maintenance hike to the Camel’s Hump. We’ll be doing the usual, removing any downed limbs and trees from the trail, cleaning waterbars out and pruning back anything that is growing into the trailbed. Bring your loppers and pruners and a longer blade folding saw if you have one. No tools, no problem: we have plenty to supply you.
Be sure to bring plenty of water, at least a couple of quarts, and lunch and snacks. You’ll want good hiking boots. No dogs due to safety concerns. Rain cancels.
Contact: Register by the evening of Sept. 21 to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Jim Gebhard at 845-626-4104. If you need to cancel, let Wendell know by 7:30 AM on Wednesday by calling 845-586-6273.
