Wednesday, September 18, 10 AM – Maintenance on Balsam Mtn.

These sections of trail are maintained by the NYNJTC/CMC crew and we need your help. We’ll start up the Rider Hollow Trail and then go up the Mine Hollow Trail, then across Balsam and back to the P.A. on the Rider Hollow Trail.  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 Tuesday, September 17 by contacting CMC board member Wendell George at, or 845-254-4546. If you need to cancel, contact me by 9:00 AM Wednesday.

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.
