Construction Begins on First Segment of Adirondack Rail Trail

Governor Kathy Hochul announced the start of construction for the Adirondack Rail Trail, a 34-mile multi-use recreational path between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid. Once completed, the Adirondack Rail Trail will connect the communities of Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake and allow users to enjoy amenities in each community, while providing access to miles of trails, campsites, and waterways. Interpretive signage will be installed to help visitors learn more about the history of the railway, and surrounding communities, lands, and waters. The trail is expected to be completed in 2025.
