DEC Update on roads & forest

Unread post by dave »

Recent Notices

Platte Clove Road: The easterly 2.5 miles of Platte Clove Road is a seasonal highway. The tentative re-opening date is May 1, 2023. Updates can be found on the Town of Hunter’s website.

Kaaterskill Wild Forest and Indian Head Wilderness: Please be advised that the Town of Hunter has parking restrictions on Route 23A and Platte Clove Road. Park only at designated DEC parking lots. Come prepared with backup options and move on if the area's parking lot is full. Any illegally parked vehicle may be ticketed and towed to the Town Hall Impound Lot.

Slide Mountain Wilderness Area:
DEC will be replacing the western bridge abutment at the second bridge crossing the Neversink River on the Peekamoose-Table Trail. Work is scheduled to commence in late April and extend through early May. During this timeframe, the bridge will occasionally be unavailable for use.

Bluestone Wild Forest: The gate allowing access to the lower parking area at Onteora Lake is now open for the season.

Peekamoose Blue Hole: As a reminder, permits are necessary to recreate or camp in the valley from May 15th – September 15th each year.

Reminder - Doubletop and Graham Mountains and surrounding private lands are no longer available for public use. Local landowners have graciously allowed public access to these mountains and private lands for many years, however; access is no longer being allowed.
