New trail completed
In early June 2015 an Americorps crew of four started constructing a new trail in Huckleberry Ridge State Forest, connecting the Lenape Ridge Trail with the Shawangunk Ridge Trail and the new parking area at the end of Raymond Drive. This trail was finished July 10, and blazed 7/14/15.
