    Please note that the DEC website has a page for each unit management area in the forest preserve. It also has email and other contact info for the office responsible.

    The reason I say that is I was look at a hike page on AllTrails and a whole bunch of people over the course of months complained about being swarmed by bees at the same point on the trail. I wonder if any of them contacted DEC to let them know. Definitely a resource if you notice safety issues on the trails.

    Adirondack/Catskill fire tower challenge: 13/31

    They sound like bald faced hornets or yellow jackets. Both have nasty dispositions and get easily agitated if you get too close to their nests
