Try Trailways??  They run severail routes in the catskills.  You can alsov try the local taxi services in Hunter/Tannsville.   Smiley's Taxi Tannersville 518-589-6533

Does anyone know of any shuttle service for hikers in the Catskills, official or unofficial? I'm doing a backpack this week, and would like to do a point to point trip rather than a loop, but am wondering if there is a service or even a hiker community that might help if I threw them a little cash?

Anyone else ever do this? Like when you are unable to hike, or it's bedtime: you find a trail description here and then you get out the old NYNJTC  maps and follow along, and imagine what it looks like? Or is that weird?

That's part of the fun of planning a hike! That's the best we have until Google TrailView rolls out. ;)

Spent several days kayaking on Lake George.  Had a great time.  A bad day kayaking is better than a good day at work.

Hi Folks,   I had a chance to try out the new digital maps for the iPhone/iPad a couple of weekends ago. Love 'em!   A brief review can be found here: http://noelbenford.com/2012/06/field-test-ny-nj-trail-conference.html
