5/5/2018 Trail Update
There is a bridge out as indicated below (circled in green). In Late Spring, NY DEC will be removing the remains of the bridge and improving the approaches to the creek to create a more user-friendly stream ford. The trail will remain a horse trail with signage at either end indicating the necessity to ford the stream.
Riders are able to cross the stream at the present time.
