    A grant has been received to fix the puncheon and we are waiting for our lumber supplier to to get the materials we need. Unfortunately, this is taking longer than anticipated. Be assured the puncheon will fixed ASAP

    This boardwalk has several boards that have fallen into the marsh as well as others too rotten to step on safely. Not a problem when the marsh was frozen, but now a misstep on a narrow board puts you ankle deep in muck.

    The Goldthwaite Memorial plaque was vandalized last March or April.  I took a photo of the plaque on March 1, 2016, and a few weeks later it was reported missing

    I was on the RD last Sunday (2/5). The plaque is gone from the boulder, and there is a clean swath below the indentation. Stolen?

    The Legacy Ridge area was protected by the Open Space Institute (OSI) in 2013, covering more than 700 acres on the eastern side of the Thruway opposite Schunemunk Mountain:  http://www.osiny.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=8471  You might contact OSI directly for further information about this area, including whether there are any trails or parking access points.

    Hey! A friend of mine told me about hiking out by Legacy Ridge but I'm not finding any info. Does anyone know if there are any marked trails or which maps might have some more info, or if there are any hikes written up? Maybe there's an alternative name I should be searching under? Any/all info would be appreciated.

    I've seen mention of a planned loop trail in the vicinity of the old Dicktown Road, in the section of Fahnestock that lies east of the Taconic. There seem to be some flags in place marking a potential route? I live quite close to this area (within walking distance!), and would be happy to help with any needed work.

    Its impossible to see if there is a new comment in the forums without clicking on each topic. Buy shop join donate volunteer etc is a message that is easy to see.

    Thanks, Daniel. The "List View of Hikes" page was the one I was missing the most--thanks for pointing out how to navigate to it. That page has now been bookmarked on my PC so I don't have to go through the convoluted navigation to get there from the NYNJTC homepage. Thanks again!
