BARRYVILLE, NY — Sullivan Trailkeeper is an online resource outlet for hiking trails and public lands in Sullivan County with easy-to-read, easy-to-access maps, information about facilities and guides to hiking safety. In celebration of its one year anniversary, the Trailkeeper.org partners will hold an educational walk through the Minisink Battleground located off Scenic Byway Rt.97 on County Road 168 in Barryville on Sunday, November 10 from 12 noon to 2 p.m.
Sullivan County Historian John Conway will lead a short stroll and guided talk through the wooded paths of the battleground, the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought in the Upper Delaware Region. The Woodland Trail is a short, mildly challenging trail featuring informative signage, wetlands, a rock quarry, and a wide variety of wildlife, eventually looping around to the Minisink Battle Monument.
The hike will be followed by local, hot apple cider and fall harvest treats. Participation is free but pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The public can register with Catskill Mountainkeeper by calling Erin Burch at 845/707-1326 by November 8. Visit www.TrailKeeper.org  to learn more about the trail, view a map and print directions.
