THE DEDICATION After a number of years planning, the trail is finally dedicated. The work will continue to lentghen and inprove the trail in the coming years.


  1. Cobleskill Rotary has assisted with the development of the Cobleskill Creek Trail for many years.  It is exciting to finally have a trail developed and used after so many years of discussion and preparation.  The Schoharie County Trail Association is a not-for-profit group and has plans to extend the trail in 2014-2015 from the current endpoint to NYS Route 7.  A new bridge will be installed (slated for 2015) once the trail reaches an old existing bridge location over the Cobleskill Creek. This project would not have been possible without the work of many.  Betsy Bernocco and Carl Sand were instrumental in bringing the project to the forefront of the list as one of the many community projects Cobleskill Rotary works on.  John Rose led most of the negotiations for the current trail course and serves as the Association President.  Maureen Blanchard is the Association Vice-Chair and has assisted with logistics and new signage for the trail.  Said Yassin has been instrumental in building our kiosk, benches, and first foot bridge.  Terry Lasher has helped with work on the pavilion, foot bridge, and new foot path being laid out along Cobleskill Creek.  Other “laborers” include Milan Jackson, Andrew Jackson, and Marty Thompson.  Marty loaned his tractor to help make hot summer work easier.  Ann and Al Smith constructed and donated a new bench.  Schoharie County DPW has done its part with signage and pavement markings on the Warnerville Cut-off Road.  It would not have been possible to do the project at all without the advice, work, and donations of Andre Nadeau and his workers.  Andre installed the trail and donated the new footbridge abutments and beams.  Anonymous workers have helped clear the trail of debris and someone generously provided two picnic tables to our pavilion.  Other key players include CS Arch Construction (donated and constructed the pavilion), Bank of Richmondville, Cobleskill Rotary, Creating

Healthy Places, Sterling Insurance, Stella McKenna (private right-of-way donation), Robert Nied Consultancy Group, United Way (brush clearing and parking lot work), Campus Auxiliary Services, CRCS Class of 2009, Fennimore Asset Management, Realty USA, U.W. Marx Construction, and many others who have donated time and money to the project. 

We hope everyone enjoys the trail in the years to come and can spare a small donation to help us extend the trail to NYS Route 7. Donations can be made to SCTA, P.O. Box 851, Cobleskill, NY 12043.
