By Georgette Weir, Volunteer Trail Supervisor
Volunteers from the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference have been out reblazing trails at Mills-Norrie State Park in a project that began this past winter and, as of mid-March, was expected to be completed this spring.
Several trails have new blaze colors that that now align with the park’s already published trail map. The trail routes and colors were determined in the 2013 park master plan. Park managers turned to the Trail Conference for help in updating the markings of trail routes and ensuring the approved trails are open and safe for hikers.
The Trail Conference expects to continue to assist the park in maintaining trails in the park, and welcomes new hands to join hike-and-work outings. Volunteer Trail Supervisor Georgette Weir will be happy to let you know what is involved in this outdoor community service program. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
