We'll be working on general trail maintenance including removing blowdowns and limbs from the trail, cutting back limbs in sight lines between trail markers and whacking any nettles, blackberries etc. that are intruding onto the trail. We'll need loppers, pruners and saws and possibly weed whips and shears. We have plenty of tools to lend to anyone who doesn't have or care to bring one.
Email or call Wendell George at 845-254-4546 by the day before the trip. If you find that you need to cancel, call by 7:15 AM on the day of the hike - as early as 6 AM is fine.
