The Schenectady Chapter maintains three trails in the Adirondack High Peaks area. Two of the trails are located on Porter Mt: the trail to Porter Mt. from the Garden via Little Porter and the Porter Ridge Trail from the Keene Valley Airport via Blueberry. The third trail is the Sunrise Trail to Mt. Gilligan.
Typical trail maintenance activities include the clearing of brush, side growth and downed trees, the creation and cleaning of water bars to prevent erosion, and the upkeep of trail markers and signs. The years trail maintenance schedule is typically announced the April/May issue of The Lookout (our newsletter).
The Schenectady Chapter has also informally adopted the City of Schenectady's section of the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail. Every year since 1993 chapter members and other volunteers have gathered on National Trails Day to cleanup the Bike-Hike Trail. Why not set aside the first Saturday in June to join us!
Curious what's involved in the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail cleanup? Read The Sunday Gazette article about our June 2, 2001 cleanup or the The Daily Gazette article about our June 1, 2002 work. Still looking for more information, our National Trails Day 2000 press release ( PDF 139k) provides even more detail about our efforts.
