2014 Draft Amendment - Cranberry Lake 50 Trail Re-route

This amendment proposes the creation of two foot trails, the Cranberry Lake 50 West and the Cranberry Lake 50 East connector trails. When fully implemented, these connector trails will enable hikers and skiers to avoid 4.14 miles of the Cranberry Lake 50 Trail's current route along NYS Route 3, making for a more pleasant and safer experience, while still utilizing 1.56 miles along Route 3 to access the amenities within the hamlet of Cranberry Lake..
