Brief description of the trash site

This roadside litter site is challenging in some areas because the steep slopes down to the River. The easiest site entry is via the long trail that begins at the parking spot further away from the bridge nearby the Mohawk trail sign. Bushwacking is required and there is poison ivy on site, so wear long pants and socks. Once all the litter is collected, explore the many trails that branch off and traverse the hill below Route 2.
