Trail Maintenance Hike, Schaghticoke Mountain, NY/CT Appalachian Trail

I was really missing the trail since I got back from Georgia so I thought I’d go up last Saturday on a favorite section of ours and check out trail conditions. Turns out, trail was in great shape, so there really wasn’t much to do except enjoy the hike!  My friend from our AMC chapter joined me. The weather was perfect for February hiking. Clear, sunny, warmish, and as a result there were a lot of hikers out! I made a video you can watch here, and there are photos below.

Miles: 5.8 (2.9 out and back)
