Another big year for Adirondack Rail Trail

December 6, 2013
By Dick Beamish , Adirondack Recreational Trail Advocates

As we approach the end of the third year in the Great Adirondack Debate over the best use of our historic rail corridor, it's encouraging to see how far we've come in a relatively short time. This fall, more than 400 businesses signed up in support of converting the 90-mile corridor between Lake Placid and Old Forge into one of the nation's premier rail trails for biking, walking, running, nature study, history appreciation, and much improved snowmobiling. Business people see an economic advantage in having thousands of trail users coming through our communities. Lodging places, restaurants, bike shops, art galleries, and other businesses up and down our main streets will all benefit.
