Trail Conditions Forum

Mud? Ice? High water at stream crossings?

This is the place to let the trail community know what you encountered, where and when (be as precise as possible). Suggestion: Make the trail or park name your subject.

To report serious trail problems that need Trail Conference attention, including illegal trail use issues, visit our Contact Us page. Problems reported through our Contact Us page get to the maintainers fast and reliably. Problems reported on the forum below may help fellow trail users avoid problem areas until they get fixed, but not all maintainers read this regularly.

Many trails above 700 feet in the Shawangunks, Black Rock Forest, Storm King S. P and Schunemunk Mtn. S. P. remain partially blocked due to the ice storms in December and January. Contact parks directly to find out what the conditions are. Use the Find a Park feature under Go Hiking to get contact info for many parks.

Hiked from Ferguson road to near route 52 today. I didn't encounter anything more than the normal after winter trail conditions. Still several inches of snow in the woods without a southern exposure though. No snow on the top of the ridge. The same for the gobbler Knob area as I walked that a few days ago. I will check Wurtsboro ridge soon.
