*UPDATE: The good news is it is snowing. The not-so-good news is that the Crowfoot Pond Hike scheduled for today will be postponed. Stay tuned for when it will be rescheduled—if there is snow then, it will be an excellent snowshoe or ski.
Thanks to local residents, CATS volunteers, and especially the NYDEC, there is a NEW bridge on the Crowfoot Pond Trail in North Hudson/Moriah. The bridge was washed away by Hurricane Irene making it difficult for hikers to get to the trail leading to the pond.
Invite your friends and neighbors and join us this Sunday, November 20, at noon to hike the easy, 5-mile round-trip trail and CELEBRATE the new bridge. Meet at the trailhead. It’s on Tracy Road, about 6 miles west of Witherbee. Coming from the other direction, it is 1.6 miles east of NYS Rt. 9 and Exit 30 of the Northway. Crowfoot Pond Trail is #44 on the CATS 2016-17 Trail Map. There is no charge for the hike, but please call (518-962-2287) or email us to let us know you plan to attend. (There is a chance of rain, so bring an umbrella!)
A note from Bill – CATS Trail Steward Bill Amadon says the trails are great for hiking, and now that the leaves have fallen it can be a little slippery when you walk downhill on them. He’s looking forward to seeing you at Crowfoot Pond on Sunday.
