HikeSafe & Winter Hiking Primer in the Catskills

HikeSafe, along with the Hiker Responsibility Code, was developed as a joint program between the White Mountain National Forest and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to create and develop a Mountain Safety Education Program.  While originally designed to educate those hiking throughout New Hampshire about the steps they must take in order to be prepared before entering the forest, the HikeSafe program has expanded to include other areas, including the Catskills.   This workshop will focus on applying HikeSafe winter hiking principals to your hikes, walks, excursions and climbs in the Catskills.  You'll learn how to be safe on your hike and how to ensure your hike doesn't degrade any of our natural resources.  Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.  Please register below so we can maintain an accurate headcount for the event.
