Project Description: 

The Catskills Roving Trail Maintenance Crew will be working with our friends from the Catskill Mountain Club and the Rip van Winkle Hikers on the western end of the Black Dome Trail. Join us 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, shears and a weed whip 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),  lunch and snacks. You’ll want good hiking boots. No dogs due to safety concerns. Strenuous. Rain cancels.
