Hiking - Trail Maintenance, Northville-Lake Placid Trail

Today, Holly and I led our semiannual trail maintenance trip for Schenectady ADK on the section of the Northville-Lake Placid Trail that we've adopted for the past 16 years. The trail section extends from the Lake Durant Campground near Blue Mountain Lake to the leanto at Stephens Pond, about 3 miles to the south. Our responsibilities include clearing blowdown, cutting back brush, clearing drainages, and reporting any issues we can't handle to NYSDEC and ADK.

It was a cold day, the trail was much wetter than usual, and there were only three of us, but we left the trail in pretty good shape for the winter XC ski season.
