Trails Reopen on Shawangunk Ridge



melted blaze

One week after a fire on the Shawangunk Ridge in the Wurtsboro area burned across the Long Path/Shawangunk Ridge Trail, melting blazes (see photo) and obscuring the path, Trail Conference volunteers had the trail reopened. Thanks go to Andy Garrison for scouting out the damage and Jakob Franke, who replaced blazes that clearly mark the way. Their quick attention to this trail segment means that the trail is reopened and can be followed by hikers.
