Group ticked for installing chairs on Slide Mtn

Unread post by dave »

Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Law Enforcement:
On July 8 at 1:30 p.m., the Catskill 3500 Club notified Forest Ranger Martin about a group of hikers carrying two Adirondack chairs toward the summit of Slide Mountain. The hikers from New Jersey indicated they intended to leave the chairs at the summit for public use. Slide Mountain is located in the Slide Mountain Wilderness and is the highest Catskill peak with an elevation of 4,120 feet. At 3 p.m., Ranger Martin met the group at the trailhead and explained it is illegal to leave the chairs at the summit. The group refused to retrieve the chairs, so Ranger Martin issued a ticket for abandoning property in a wilderness area and the Ranger and Summit Steward Moran retrieved the chairs.
