Trail Work on the Mossy Glen Footpath at Minnewaska

May 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Volunteers will work with the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference members and Park Preserve staff to harden and repair the trail surface on the first half mile of the Mossy Glen Footpath. Deep puddles frequently form on this section of trail and hikers walk around the edges of these wet spots, widening the trail in the process. Volunteers will create rock crush which they’ll use to fill in these seasonally wet potholes. Some tasks will be physically demanding and may involve carrying, lifting, and bending as well as using hand tools, such as shovels, pry bars, and sledgehammers. It is recommended that volunteers bring work gloves, waterproof boots and clothes they don’t mind getting dirty, as this project area may be muddy and wet. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own tools. This program is appropriate for children over the age of 13, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to ten individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum of six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Meet at the Lower Parking Area. For more information, please call Minnewaska at 845-255-0752. Pre-registration is required by visiting: www.ptny.org/ilovemypark.
