Popular Ulster County Nature Trail and Preserve Still Closed after Winter Storm
It seems that winter storm Landon's wrath continues to be felt around the Hudson Valley and most especially in Ulster County. After Landon came through on Friday (February 4, 2022) we haven't had warm enough temperatures to melt the ice and snow that brought massive power outages plus tree damage to the area.
The continued icy conditions plus the ongoing clean-up will hopefully get some much-needed aid today and throughout the rest of the week as temperatures are expected to continue to go up a few degrees each day plus we expect some sun to help with the melting process.

The continued ice and trail conditions have resulted in the Mohonk Preserve staying closed again today (February 8, 2022). The Preserve along with other trails in the Ulster County area have been closed since the storm last Friday (February 4, 2022). On both the Mohonk Preserve website and on their Facebook page, they are posting daily updates on closures.
