    Wazzup in the Catskills?

    (repeating from a non-NY thread)

    The southern Catskills are almost free of snow and ice. Winter seems to be hanging on in the high peaks, with lots of icy trails. I've seen descriptions of '5 miles of ice', 'river of ice', 'ice fest', etc. We did not get a lot of snow this winter. Therefore the stream levels are not very high, but a lot of rain is predicted for the next few days. In the afternoons, you will have mud!

    If you do come, they are urging you avoid popular trails, and limit your interactions at gas stations, stores, etc. Restaurants and bars are closed, but some are offering takeout.

    Another development, from the TOWN of Hunter (not sure they have the authority to say this, but they did):

    "To all residents and those seeking to visit the Town of Hunter,

    Following Governor Cuomo’s executive order to implement PAUSE (Policies that Assure Uniform Safety for Everyone), we ask that residents and visitors DO NOT access our trailheads, public recreational areas, local landmarks or attempt to access the High Peaks within the Town of Hunter until further notice."
