Thompson to Tower Trail 2 News 1DLC Volunteers kept at the construction of the new trail connecting Thompson Pond with the Stissing Fire Tower.

In the second of a continuing series of volunteer events, the DLC partnered with The Nature Conservancy in NY and Friends of Stissing Landmarks - as well as a number of DLC volunteers - to continue work on the new trail that will eventually connect the Thompson Pond Preserve with the fire tower atop Stissing Mountain in Pine Plains. Hearty and enthusiastic volunteers moved boulders to make new steps on the trail and gathered and crushed stones to improve the treadway on the steep slopes. Further events are planned for July and August as we work toward a hopeful September completion of the trail.
