Mini Cairns in the Catskills

If you have ever been out on some trails and have noticed a stacked pile of rocks, then you have seen a cairn (pronounced like ‘Care’ with an ‘n’ sound at the end).  These piles of rocks are often constructed to help people navigate trails or other paths where other markings are difficult to make, such as over expanses of rock like this area along the Poet’s Ledge Trail in the Catskills.  Of course, there are many rock piles that are just created by people having fun trying to balance rocks!
