Off the roads and into the woods?!

October 23, 2009

We have had encouraging meetings with the NYC DEP concerning routing the trail off Rte. 129 into the woods just north of the New Croton Dam. This would be approximately .7 miles.  There is still work to go: a formal proposal to make, but we are encouraged.

What were you doing Sadie Hawkins Day!?

March 4, 2008

We were blazing the Hudson Trail in 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.

At the New Croton Dam on Veterans Day 2007, Corey marks the trail with an HT monogram on our gorgeous sky blue marker. This spectacular part of the Hudson Trail overlooks the spillway of the Croton River.
