    Town of Hunter Trail Closures

    Town of Hunter is closing trailheads and request no visitors to the High Peaks...

    March 24th – 2020


    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.
    Yesterday on March 23rd, the Town of Hunter received the following correspondence from Greene County EMS Coordinator Sean Hotaling:


    As we all can see the situation with COVID-19 is changing daily and there are still many uncertainties, it has been decided that fire department first response will only be dispatched for any ECHO level call, or DELTA level cardiac arrest call during this temporary policy.


    This decision was taken with responder safety at the fore front. It is imperative that we all protect ourselves as best we can. The lack of large amounts of the proper PPE has unfortunately put the County’s fragile EMS system in a tough position.
    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....

    Five Basic Principles of Going Lighter

    “To equip a pedestrian with shelter, bedding, utensils, food, and other necessities, in a pack so light and small that he can carry it without overstrain, is really a fine art.” ~ Horace Kephart, 1906
