40.966557,-74.475461

We will start clearing the Wildcat Ridge Trail ( Yellow) south towards the reservoir.

Be prepared for walking...no bikes.
Wear long sleeve shirts, jackets, long pants, work boots, and bright orange as there will be hunters out there.
I have a few hardhats, but bring hardhat and eye protection if you have it.
Tick repellant, Poison Ivy protection.
Bring water.
Gloves supplied.
Leave your chainsaw at home.
Folding hand saws and two man saws are available.

Update 11/19/12
Wildcat Ridge Trail (Yellow) is clear from splitrock to Hawkwatch Trail, thanks to Utah, GraveYardMan67 and GSS.
Hawkwatch Trail (orange) is clear.
Hibernia Brook Trail (orange) is clear.
Righter Mine Trail (Green) is clear but note that bulldozer work is in process by the power line tower.

The Four Birds Trail (White) north of the hawkwatch (towards slitrock) has extensive damage in the valley. The infamous "bolder" section is trapped between very large downfall. JORBA marked re-routes with pink tape and this may or may not be temporary based on assessment by the NYNJTC.
