  • Route 42 Hiking Lots

    Anyone notice if the Shaft Road/Sherrill lot was plowed this week? I drove by the Halcott lot last night and it was plowed....but forgot to look at Shaft Rd.
    Think cold thoughts.

    The DEP may plow in to check on their instruments up by the shaft itself. As for the parking lot, it does not seem to be on the high priority list, but gets done eventually. Remember that the dirt roadway before the gate is private property, a school bus and snow plow turn about. There have been issues in the past.
    ​So no, I don't know, but I would guess yes.

        Thanks. I drove by this morning. The Shaft Rd lot is partially plowed but room for a handful of cars. The lot for Hunter firetower on Spruceton Rs was not plowed this morning but the lot farther down on the right is. We talked to the highway supervisor and he said two plow trucks were broken but if he could get one running he'd get the lot plowed. Reminder not to park on Spruceton Rd!
