In case anyone wants to look for these birds, here are a few more details. Starting at the gate at the southern end, the trail climbs gently but steadily for a few hundred yards. Then it plateaus. I found the birds a couple hundred yards in on the plateau. As a landmark, I've included (if it goes through here) a photo of a fairly distinctive log that was on the left (west) side of the trail. It has two obvious bracket fungi. Listen for the birds' drumming.

Approximately 43.918648, -74.012845 this morning around 9:45 I had two Black-backed Woodpeckers. I walked in from the southern end. I've posted some photos on the New York birders facebook page. Also there were about five Ruffed Grouse, a Blackburnian, a Yellow-rumped, and a Magnolia. Quite a few Winter Wrens, Hermit Thrush.
