Biking Along the West Branch of the Delaware | Saturday, June 15, 2019 @ 11 AM

This will be a relaxed-paced bike ride using both roads and trails from Delhi to South Kortright and back. We’ll head out County Route 18 from Delhi to South Kortright. In South Kortright, we’ll get on the Catskill Scenic Rail Trail and head back to Bloomville. From there, we’ll use River Road to get back to Route 18 and then we’ll head back to Delhi.

Much of this route is alongside the Delaware River and, on the road portion, there are rolling hills and open views of the western foothills of the Catskills. The Catskill Scenic Rail Trail lives up to its name, but it is uneven and can be muddy. Road bikes will not work on this trail.

Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Leader(s): John Sandman, Barbara Jones

Bring:  Bike (Hybrid or Mountain), Helmet, Water, Snacks
