Thursday, November 5, 8:00 AM | Southern Pine Hill – West Branch Trail Maintenance to Big Indian Mountain

The CMC Roving Crew and our friends from the Rip van Winkle Hikers will be working on the southern end of the Pine Hill – West Branch Trail on October 29.  Join us for this maintenance hike from the Biscuit Brook trailhead to Big Indian Mountain. We’ll be doing the usual, removing any downed limbs and trees from the trail, cleaning waterbars out and pruning back anything that is growing into the trailbed. Bring your loppers and pruners and a longer blade folding saw if you have one. No tools, no problem: we have plenty to supply you.

Be sure to bring plenty of water, at least a couple of quarts, and lunch and snacks. You’ll want good hiking boots. No dogs due to safety concerns. About nine miles out and back. Rain cancels.

Contact: Register by the evening of October 28 to wendell@catskillmountainclub.org to let me know if you plan to come. If you need to cancel, let me know by 7:30 AM on Thursday. You can also call me at 845-586-6273.

Directions: Drive south from SR 28 in Big Indian for about 12.6 miles to the Biscuit Brook P.A. on CR47 / Oliverea-Frost Valley Rd. (Past the Slide Mtn. P.A.)
