Travel directions: 
Due to limited parking at the future trailhead, we will be meeting at the parking areas located at the intersection of High Street and Woodland Valley Road (on the western side of the Esopus River) in Phoenicia.  Please meet at this parking lot by 9am, at which time we will carpool to the work area. If you need more detailed directions, please contact Andy, the trip leader.
