National Trails Day 2009

June 10, 2009

Our group was small but lively and a good time was had by all. We saw many specimens of Natrix Sipedon (the Northern water snake) basking in the sun’s rays after a heavy rain: pictures of fauna and flora coming. Here is our photographer putting up a marker.

What were you doing Sadie Hawkins Day!?

March 4, 2008

We were blazing the Hudson Trail in Bell Hollow.

On Bell Hollow

Take a look at the video to see and hear Bob describe the work (not our best video: it was very cold).

We have been given permission to put sky blue blazes on the Old Croton Aqueduct from the Bronx-Westchester border to the Croton Dam. We are working with people in the Bronx to obtain permission for the route from Highbridge to the border. The route is essentially the NYC Old Croton Aqueduct Trail.

The weather is turning nice and we need everyone’s help to complete markings of the South Trek to make our deadline of National Trail Day, June 7th, for events along the Hudson Trail, including crossing the Appalachian Trail at Sunken Mine Road.
