OUR CHAPTER OUTINGS/ACTIVITIES TAKE ACTION VOLUNTEER


Oct 21 (Sat) TACONIC CREST TRAIL (TCT) TRAIL WORK

We'll cover the section of the TCT from Robinson Hollow to Mattison Hollow. This will involve blow down removal and drainage work. This trip will involve an overall elevation gain of about 1,000 foot and about an 8 mile round trip, depending on the what needs to be done. The more trail needed will reduce the overall distance. Regardless, we'll plan to be back at the trailhead by 4:00pm.
