Tuesday, May 6, 9 AM – Western Black Dome Trail Maintenance to Thomas Cole

The CMC/NYNJTC Roving Crew will be working on the western end of the Black Dome Trail next. Join us and our friends from the Rip van Winkle Hikers for this maintenance hike over the Camel’s Hump and on to Thomas Cole Mountain. 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 May 5 to wendell@catskillmountainclub.org to let me know if you plan to come. If you need to cancel, let me know by 7:30 AM on Tuesday. You can also call me at 845-254-4546.

Directions: From SR 23A in Hunter, take Scribner Hollow Rd. north to CR 23C. Turn west and go to CR 40. Turn north on CR 40 and go to Barnum Rd. Turn east and go to the P.A. at the end of Barnum Rd.
