  1. JUL 9 / OVERLOOK MOUNTAIN / From Platte Clove / The trails were already very muddy to begin with, but then and incredible storm blew through and drenched the whole area.

  2. JUL 2 / VROMAN’S NOSE / Loop trail from north side. / Unsettled weather brought low clouds and rain showers to The Catskills — and the mosquitoes were out in force too, so pack your bug spray!

  3. MAR 19 / Black Dome & Thomas Cole via Lockwood Gap / Cold cold cold but the trench was in great condition — apart from postholes on either side the whole way! Less traffic between Black Dome and Thomas Cole meant the trench wasn’t as well defined, but BD and Blackhead are fully broken out.

  4. MAR 11 / VAN WYCK LOOP / From Route 42 (Peekamoose Road) / Spikes through Bear Hole Brook then snowshoes the rest of the way. This was just before the big nor’easter hit.
