Project Description: 
The Trail Conference's Catskills Trail Crew will be working on developing a new interpretive hiking trail as part of the development and construction of the Catskill Interpretive Center.   On this trip we will be clearing the trail route and beginning to construct the trail.  Work will include clearing, sidehilling and tread construction. This work trip is part of a series of workshops and work trips that will be held at the Catskill Interpretive Center in Mount Tremper.  Ongoing workshops and work trips will be held to build an interpretive hiking trail on the property that will be open to the public for hiking.   Please make sure to wear your hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our trail building activities; pack plenty of water to stay hydrated; bring work gloves; and bring a bag lunch.   The public is welcome to join us and you do not need to be a member of the Trail Conference to join the Trail Crew.  No experience is necessary, we will provide the tools and the training on site before we get started.
