 TRAIL MAINTENANCE UPDATE

This year, with your help, the Friends has been able to repair portions of Pocantico River and Gorey Brook Trails. Along with repair of the wooden bridge at Witches Spring Trail, which had been heavily damaged by winter weather, this work was completed in June. Deer Run was then repaired in the summer. The combined cost was $56,100.
We’re now funding a new project on Buttermilk Hill. The work will consist of 3200 feet of reconstruction, including re-establishing a drainage swale on the catch basin side of the trail, raising overhead branches, raising and lowering the trailside as needed to establish proper runoff, amending the shoulders with soil and seed as needed, and raising the trail with trail material including top dressing the entire trail with 4′ of mix material. The estimated cost for this will be $38,641.
The total cost for all of these projects is approximately $95,000. Your donations, entry fees, and volunteer hours at our events are what have made this work possible. Thank You! We look forward to providing updates as work progresses and letting you know about new projects as they emerge. And we hope to see many of you at the Rocky’s 5k! Wishing you a healthy and wonderful autumn, Your Friends of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve.
