DEC: North Country Trail in New York?

February 2008
New York State Conservationist;Feb2008, Vol. 62 Issue 4, p37
The article deals with a proposal from the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation which would create a new 140-mile trail winding from Boonville on the western edge of the Adirondack Mountains to Crown Point on the shores of Lake Champlain. This trail could become the newest section of the North Country National Scenic Trail. In New York, the path would capitalize on existing trail networks such as the Finger Lakes Trail and the Onondaga Trail. The route would connect national forests, scenic areas and other significant resources.
