SECTION 2 – Easier Go-Around For CR3
For those not up for the challenge of the rocky uphill and descent on CR3 in Section 2 just north of Fleischmans, we are offering an easier go-around that is a combination of dirt and tar roads. This go-around will be included on the upcoming map reprint this summer as well as integrated into the next version of the .gpx tracks.
About 4 miles north of the gas stop in Fleischmans on Brush Ridge, bear right onto Townsend Hollow to Upper Birch Creek Road to Crump Hill Road to Gooding Rd. and then head north on Rt. 42.
Left off of Rt. 42 onto S. Beech Ridge Road to North Beech Ridge Road to a hard left onto CR2. Take CR2 along the Schoharie Creak and bear left up the hill at the Falke Road intersection. Continue on CR2 to where it meets back up with the NEBDR tracks at the intersection of CR3 and CR2. The go-around is indicated as a pink line on this map, the main track is blue.
