Hudson Highlands- Wilkinson Trail

Crew Name: 
Taconic Crew
Project date: 
Sunday, January 3, 2016 - 9:00am - 4:00pm
Project/Trail Location: 
1/2 mile north of the Breakneck trail head on 9D
Project Description: 


The ground isn't frozen yet! Come move mountains...well, rocks anyway. Wilkinson needs some love. Forecast looks bearable, a balmy 37(ish).

We'll tailor the trail building to meet your new year's resolution, just ask...

Come prepared to break a little sweat. If you plan to stay a while bring provisions, and dress *accordingly-- layers recommended. (*sturdy shoes or boots, long pants(as if you'll wear shorts in this weather), and gloves, although work gloves will be provided)

If enough people come we will be moving stepping stones using a grip hoist and rock bars. Otherwise, we will do tread and drainage.
