Tuesday, August 20, 9AM – Eagle Mtn. Trail Maintenance on the Rider Hollow and Pine Hill-West Branch Trails

These sections of trail are maintained by the NYNJTC/CMC crew and we need your help. We’ll start up the Rider Hollow Trail, cross Haynes Mtn. go to the summit of Eagle on the high and remote Catskill Divide.  We’ll be clearing blowdowns, cleaning waterbars and cutting understory growth that obscures the trail and markers. We’ll have tools to lend or bring your favorite pruners or loppers. A weed whip would be useful if someone can bring one. Bring plenty of water, lunch and snacks. No dogs due to safety concerns. Rain cancels. Register by Monday, August 19 by contacting CMC board member Wendell George at wendell@catskillmountainclub.org, or 845-254-4546. If you need to cancel, contact me by 8:00 AM Tuesday.

Directions: From SR 28 in Highmount, turn south onto Galli-Curci Rd. which becomes Todd Mountain Rd. Go about 4.9 miles to Rider Hollow Rd. and turn left/southeast. Drive to the Rider Hollow P.A. at the end of the road.

From SR 28 in Arkville, turn south onto Dry Brook Rd. and travel 4.7 miles to Todd Mountain Rd. Turn left/east and go .5 mile to Rider Hollow Rd. Turn right/southeast to the Rider Hollow P.A. at the end of the road.
