National Trails Day: June 7th, 2008

May 21, 2008

The South Trek marking is nearing completion. We celebrated this AND the crossing of the HT with the Appalachian Trail (AT) on National Trails Day, June 7th. This was a day of events going on all around the country and we were happy to be part of the festivities.

Here is a link to an album of photos taken by Norman:

Protomarkers UP: South Trek nears completion

May 20, 2008

While waiting for the official New York State robin’s egg blue trail disks, we have been scouting the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail and putting up protomarkers, especially at road crossing where improved signage is needed.

Jeanine, not the graphetti artist Jeanine was holding the paint, not in the middle of decorating vent #9.

We have met many fine folks out on the Trail, who thanked us for our efforts. This part of the trail is very walkable and it appears to be heavily used.

Protomarkers, aka 2x2s, are small blue splotches to be covered up with the official disks.

See one in the photo under an old NYS marker. Please let us know if you know how old the white NYS markers are.
