A Draft Adirondack Rail Trail Conceptual Plan outlining the general design and features of the future 34-mile, multi-use recreational trail on the bed of the former railway between Lake Placid and Tupper Lake has been released for public review and comment, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today.

"The Draft Adirondack Rail Trail Conceptual Plan is an important step in developing a unique, world class outdoor recreation trail like no other in the Adirondacks, New York State, or the nation," said DEC Commissioner Seggos. "The rail trail will connect the villages of Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, and Lake Placid, providing visitors and residents with new opportunities to walk, hike, and bike in three seasons, and cross-country ski, snowshoe, and snowmobile in winter, boosting local economies in surrounding communities all year long."

Public comments will be accepted until close of business June 2, 2017. Written comments may be mailed to the contact listed above.
