Thursday, July 24, 9:00 AM – Trail Maintenance of the Pine Hill-West Branch Trail

This section of trail is maintained by the CMC/NYNJTC Catskills Roving Trail Crew and we need your help. We’ll hike out from the Seager P.A. up to the PH-WB and then work across Eagle and Haynes mountains, hiking back on the Oliverea-Mapledale Trail to Rider Hollow. We’ll be clearing blowdowns, cleaning waterbars and cutting understory growth that obscures the trail and markers. We’ll have plenty of tools to lend or bring your favorite pruners or loppers.

Bring plenty of water, lunch and snacks. No dogs due to safety concerns. Rain cancels. Register by Monday, June 16 by contacting CMC board member Wendell George at or 845-254-4546. If you need to cancel, contact me by 7:30 AM Tuesday.

NOTE: We’ll meet at the intersection of Todd Mountain Rd. and Dry Brook Rd., then spot cars at Rider Hollow before going to the Seager trailhead.

Directions: From SR 28 in Highmount, turn south at the sign for Belleayre Mtn. onto Galli-Curci Rd., which continues straight ahead as Todd Mountain Rd. Go about 5.1 miles to Dry Brook Rd.  Turn left/south. Drive 4.2 miles to the Seager P.A. at the end of the road.
From SR 28 in Arkville, turn south onto Dry Brook Rd. and travel 8.9 miles to the Seager P.A. at the end of the road.
