The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference in collaboration with the Catskill 3500 Club have announced the establishment of a seasonal Summit Steward Program in the Catskill Park. The 2015 pilot program will focus on Slide Mountain, the Catskills highest summit and one of its most popular destinations.
Summit Stewards will help visitors to Slide Mountain’s summit (elev. 4,180 feet) make the most of this spectacular Catskill destination. Stewards will share information on good trail routes, hiking safety and etiquette, and how to support the Catskill Park and hiking trails in the region.
In addition to the paid seasonal stewards, the Trail Conference will be offering interested individuals the opportunity to become a volunteer summit steward who will support the seasonal staff.
