Trail Crew: Trail Maintenance on the Rider Hollow and Pine Hill-West Branch Trails

Crew Name: 
Catskills Roving Trail Maintenance Crew
Project date: 
Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 9:00am - 4:00pm
Project/Trail Location: 
Rider Hollow & Pine Hill-West Branch Trails
Catskills Region 3
Project Description: 

We’ll start up the Rider Hollow Trail, cross Haynes Mtn. go to the summit of Eagle on the high and remote Catskill Divide.  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 Monday, August 19 by contacting CMC board member Wendell George at [email protected], or 845-254-4546. If you need to cancel, contact me by 8:00 AM Tuesday.
