WOODRIDGE – For some Sullivan County organizations, this February there’s no business like snow business!
On Feb. 22 at 10:30 a.m., Catskill Mountainkeeper invites the community to snowshoe on the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail from Mountaindale to Woodridge at the first annual SnO&W Snowshoe Fun Run and Walk.
“The Catskills are truly a four-season recreational wonderland,” said Ramsay Adams, Executive Director of Catskill Mountainkeeper. “The SnO&W celebrates the best winter has to offer, with snowshoeing, hiking, food and drink on the newly developed and expanding scenic Sullivan O&W Rail Trail. This family-friendly event is the culmination of a wonderful partnership between Catskill Mountainkeeper, Trailkeeper, Sullivan 180, the Village of Woodridge, the Town of Fallsburg, Mountaindale Action Committee, Morgan Outdoors, and the Sullivan County Division of Planning.
Local officials are thrilled at the chance to show off their segments of the trail.
The approximately 2-mile course will begin at the trailhead on Mall Road in Mountaindale and finish at Krieger Park in Woodridge, with complimentary refreshments at Woodridge Village Hall following the event.
There will be a limited number of snowshoes available for rent. Transportation will be provided from the race end back to parking.
