Trail Walker got this message today from our Jolly Rovers crew: “We’re happy to announce that the Rovers completed the Fitzgerald Falls staircase this past weekend on the A.T. in Greenwood Lake, NY! The crew knocked it out of the park. The work came in at 60 stone steps supported by 70 sq. feet of cribbing with 25 crew members volunteering over 1300 hours during a 12 day period.”
They didn’t mention, but should have, how beautiful their work is. You too can learn these skills and join one of our technical trail crews. See our Trail U workshop schedule for stonework classes.
Fitzgerald Falls is a short and easy hike from roadside parking and well worth a trip. Click here to find day hike directions to Fitzgerald Falls on the Appalachian Trail Conservancy website.
