Is there an exact address or longitude latitude mark for the camp ground?
Additional information on the Krawl for the Kids and the Hancock area.
GPS Address---100 Tar Hollow Road, Hancock, NY. That address also works on Google Earth if you want to check out the area. If you come through town, you will cross under and over RT 17 twice. Entrance to Tar Hollow access road is located right next to a blue stone supply yard. Make a left onto the dirt road where the pavement ends. The road winds up the side of the hill approx. 2.2 miles to the main camp and the dirt road intersections will be marked for the event. The access road is narrow, but is in pretty good shape and will allow for trailers and RVs to make it up to the main camp.
Coordinates: Access Road N 41 58.521 W 075 12.620
Camp N 42 00.343 W 075 12.211
60-70 degree days with 40-50 at night. I am told the fall colors should be really vibrant by the first week of October, and it will make the beautiful scenery even better.
Fuel and Supplies:
It is approx. 8 miles from the main camp into Hancock. There are several gas stations in town and a few have diesel fuel. There is a small grocery store, an auto parts store, a chain pharmacy, and a few places to eat, including a few local diners and a McDonald’s. The property owner will also have a small snack shack open Friday and Saturday at the main camp.
Coverage is good in town for Verizon, but very spotty up at the camp and trail riding area. Sometimes a text would get through, but often my phone was “searching for a signal” while in the Tar Hollow area.
The trails seem to be a good mix that will allow for all different skill and vehicle levels. There are hill climbs, rocks, logs, stumps, some mud, and some tight technical sections that can be a challenge. All the trails will be marked with flags stapled to the trees, much like a motorcycle enduro race. These flags will show the difficulty levels (Hero or Easy) and the direction of travel for the trail. For safety reasons, it is important that the trails are run in the proper direction. There are several loops off the main trails that add some excitement to the ride. Participants can wheel with their own groups, provided they have a minimum of two vehicles, or if requested, NJJA will provide a club Trail Guide(s) for small groups.
