Directions to meeting spot close to the Croton Dam:
Access location by driving on Croton Dam Rd. in Croton on Hudson from the south (you can no longer drive across the Croton Dam; you must approach from the south!) and entering the dirt road found on the left just before the top of the Croton Dam. Drive on that dirt road, which is County Park property, then take the left fork to reach the entrance to the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. Park in single file on the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, look for "Volunteer Park Here" signs. When you arrive, check in at the registration table and receive your t-shirt.
Hosted by the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct (www.aqueduct.org) in collaboration with Westchester Parks Foundation and the NY-NJ Trail Conference’s Invasive Strike Force, with support from Hudson View Auto and
