  • REGION – Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Catskill Mountainkeeper for a Fall Hike at the Tusten Mountain Trail in Sullivan County, N.Y. on Sunday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.-noon.
    Enjoy great views of the Delaware River, fall foliage approaching its zenith, and traverse a historic stone arch bridge. Learn about the ecology, culture, and history of the area with Melinda Meddaugh, Land Protection Coordinator for the Conservancy.
    The Tusten Mountain Trail is featured on the newly launched website, TrailKeeper.org, a one-source outlet for hiking trails and public lands in Sullivan County with easy-to-read, easy-to-access maps and facilities information and guides to hiking safety.
    TrailKeeper.org provides access to trail information that matches hiker to trail.
    The Tusten Mountain Trail is maintained by the National Park Service. Remember to wear hiking shoes, comfortable clothes, and to bring water for this moderately strenuous trail.
