Trail Layout - Catskill Mountains

Spent the weekend working on designing a new trail that will begin near the village of Phoenicia in the Catskill Mountains.  The trail will also take the Long Path off its current road walk and eventually create a new 7 mile back country trail that will connect to the Burroughs Range Trail and the Terrace Mountain Trail.

We didn't get quite that far on our layout, but we did find a number of interesting ways to climb Romer Mountain along with a number of features that are likely going to be incorporated into the final trail.  Looks like we're going to have plenty of trail building later this season to work on!

This was one of the views we found - this one looks down on the village of Phoenicia and up the Stony Clove Creek Valley.
