Help Open Minnewaska to Climbing!

Help us open the Dickie Barre cliff for climbing in the Minnewaska State Park Preserve!

We need lots of volunteers to help us prepare trails and improve the access road to the new climbing area. Volunteers are needed to help layer the rutted out road with gravel, install drainage structures and improve areas around the new climbing cliff. The Access Fund Conservation Team will also be on hand to help.

Work days are both Saturday (5/19) and Sunday (5/20). Meet at 9am at the Peter's Kill Climbing Area parking lot. Tell the people at the gate that you will be volunteering with the GCC. Bring the usual for a work day - work gloves, water, lunch, snacks. If you have extra wheelbarrows and shovels, please bring them too, as we may run short.

Please spread the word and tell your friends!
