This new patch is designed to celebrate the trails that have been built by the CMC. Though similar in design to our new CMC Hiking Trails patch available for purchase, these patches have one significant difference – the addition of a star. They will be awarded only to those individuals who hike all of the CMC trails and submit an application showing the dates of each hike. A log and application form can be downloaded using the link below.
In 2012, the CMC decided to build hiking trails with the purpose of creating trails of easy to moderate difficulty for hikers of many abilities, conveniently located near local villages. With the opening of the Ashokan Quarry Trail in Olivebridge, we have now designed, constructed and continue to maintain six trails in the Catskills with the generous help of many volunteers. In cooperation with partners like the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, local governments, other public entities and private landowners, we have been able to develop the trails on lands that have many beautiful and historically significant features. We are in the process of building a seventh trail that will be located in Arkville on a DEP parcel. It is expected to open in 2021.
Detailed descriptions and maps of each trail can be downloaded on this website – look in the Where to Go menu. Brochures containing brief descriptions and maps can be found at the trailheads and at various other outlets including the Catskills Visitor Center in Mount Tremper. The brochure can be viewed here. The maps are also available for download for smartphones using the Avenza Maps application. There is no charge for the Avenza app or the CMC trail maps, which are available individually or as a bundle. Happy trails!
There is no charge for the patch. We would appreciate your support for our programs, including this one. Please make a donation or join the CMC.
