Trail Conference member and volunteer Brett Schollman of Cortland Manor, NY, is newly appointed as one of two Breakneck Ridge Trail Stewards hired by the Trail Conference to provide trail advice to hikers. Brett joins Kali Bird of Beacon either staffing a table at the foot of the “most popular trail in North America,” or hiking along the trail, sharing info about how to hike safely while respecting this great natural resource in the Hudson Highlands. The trailhead for this Hudson Highlands State Park trail is along Route 9D on the Dutchess/Putnam County border.
Brett is an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, completing his Georgia to Maine trek in 2011. He has also worked as a snowboard instructor at Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont. He is a 2009 graduate of State University of New York at Albany with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
The Trail Conference is pleased to be working with Hudson Highlands State Park on this project to connect with hikers right on the trail and improve the trail experience for everyone.
