Trail grading equipment at CCC project, Schuyler County

A tractor and a grader for the rough truck trails built by the Civilian Conservation Corps sit on a work in progress. This trail was likely constructed to improve access to a reforestation area and to assist with firefighting efforts. This trail, #202-1, is the work of CCC camp S-123, stationed in Beaver Dams, N.Y. This image was created to record the reforestation work of the Civilian Conservation Corps under the supervision of the New York State Conservation Department.
