Overview

Come perk up our favorite short hike! A local section of trail near the camp needs a some loving care since we were last there a year ago. We'll spend a few hours maintaining the Suffern Bear Mountain Trail between Corman AMC Harriman Outdoor Center and Big Hill Shelter. Afterwards, we'll all jump in the lake for a refreshing swim or grab a canoe/kayak for a fun paddle! For those who choose to stay, you may purchase dinner separately. We supply all the training and tools. All you have to do is bring work gloves if you have them. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and boots.
