Gunks Greenway D&H Canal Gets New Long Path Bridge

Yesterday (Wednesday, April 10), volunteers with our Long Distance Trails Crew (LDTC) were up in Wawarsing in the Shawangunk region, building a new footbridge on the D&H Canal. The canal’s towpath is a popular walk for residents and visitors, and provides a route for a section of our Long Path along the Gunks Greenway.

The crew plans to be out again both Saturday and Sunday this weekend on the Appalachian Trail on West Mountain in Harriman State Park. Sunday will be an Intro to Crew Work day. They welcome new volunteers to join their projects. You can find details and contact info for the outings on the crew schedule on our website (click). Look for ‘Long Distance Trails Crew’ or leader Chris Reyling.

A grant from Avon Products of Suffern, NY, helped pay for supplies.
