Hiking Trails Closed in Post-Irene Catskills
We came across this post yesterday in a blog we’ve just discovered by an upstate New York real estate agent, Kellie Place (lots of good stuff on here, although a surprising pro-fracking bent to it). Kellie writes that the DEC has decided to close trails on DEC-managed land in Ulster and Greene counties, and state campgrounds will be closed, too. Better safe than sorry, as she says, although it’ll add to the continued problem of economic recovery, cutting into leaf-peeping season and the fall exodus to the hills.
