Help Monitor Illegal ATV Use of the Taconic Crest Trail (TCT)
    A local forest ranger has been vigorously enforcing state regulations, and has apprehended several riders.  DEC has repaired ATV damage on sections of the trail and posted positive signage at several trailhead locations. It's important that we hike the trail and monitor any illegal ATV activity.

Report any incidences as soon as possible to:
DEC Ranger : Hannah O'Connor,   
Please also copy: David Pisaneschi,  
    If possible, please include descriptions of individuals and vehicles, license numbers, along with date, time and location on the trail.  

Do not challenge or confront ATV users. Any photos of ATVs and damage along the trail would also be useful.
