Unfortunately, they couldn't drop the material on the trail, so a Student Conservation Association crew hauled maybe half of it through the swamp to the trail. This "head start" allowed the ATIS crew to finish the job in 3-1/2 weeks, getting a bit of help from the DEC the final week.
Thanks - I'll amend that bit of the text.
