SHAWANGUNK REGION TRAIL
The Painter Hill Multiple Use Area is very overgrown and unmaintained. The markings on trees are not visible.
Directions: From Route 17, take exit 113 for Route 209; turn right onto Route 209 north; drive 8.6 miles and turn left (0.1 of a mile into Ulster County and just before the sign for the Town of Warwasing) and then a quick right onto Phillipsport Road; drive 3.6 miles (keep going straight from Phillipsport Road onto Mountaindale Road) and turn right onto Aldrich Road; drive 1.5 miles and turn right onto Painter Hill Road; drive less than one block and turn left into the parking area. (If on Mountaindale Road you reach Tomsco Falls, with the falls on the left, you have gone way too far.) Source: http://nynjctbotany.org/whudson/painterhill.html
