@Challengers, both @Petorius and @KimJ reported this morning that the Waterfront Trail suffered a lot of downed trees and branches in last night’s storms, and Kim couldn’t get across the second bridge at all. The City of Ithaca will no doubt be out cleaning up soon, but given how much damage there was, it’s conceivable that the bridges may be closed for a day or two. It would be great if someone can report back here when things are open again.
More generally, for anyone running our trail courses, it’s likely that downed trees and branches are blocking the course trail in various spots. I’m sure the trail steward organizations like the Friends of Hammond Hill and the Cayuga Trails Club are on top of it, but be careful when running out there, and please do report back on any major obstructions.
