According to, in 2012, the CMC decided to build hiking trails with the purpose of creating trails of easy to moderate difficulty for hikers of many abilities, conveniently located near local villages.  In cooperation with partners like the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, local governments, other public entities and private landowners, they have been able to develop the trails on lands that have many beautiful and historically significant features.  

Detailed descriptions and maps of each trail can be downloaded from their website.  The maps are also available for download for smartphones using the Avenza Maps application. There is no charge for the Avenza app or the CMC trail maps, which are available individually or as a bundle.

Road Work Alert

Posted: 09/08/20

Please be advised that on Thursday, September 10 and Friday, September 11, weather permitting, the Town of Delhi Highway Department will oil and stone the following locations:

  • West Platner Brook
  • Peakes Brook

Please expect delays and use extra caution when traveling on these roads.  

This process covers an existing road with a layer of oil and stone that helps seal damage to a roadway and extends the life of the surface at a fraction of the cost of resurfacing. This option is an effective way to seal cracks and prevent new ones.
