From the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC):
The reopening of this section of trail features a reroute that provides a safer route around the compromised rock face due to the recent vandalism of the steel rungs that were installed in August 2019. The vandalism created a safety hazard for visitors utilizing this section of trail. The DEC believes that the public will find that the reroute was built in the character of what one expects to find when hiking the Devil's Path.
