What's New In the Adirondacks

February 2013 Archives

A 12.8 mile trail that connects the communities of Inlet, Indian Lake, and Raquette Lake, NY is now open for public use, offering recreational opportunities for all four seasons. The new trail runs through the Moose River Plains Wild Forest trail system in Hamilton County, which connects Newcomb in Essex County and Old Forge in Herkimer County, and can be used by snowmobiles, hikers, and bikers. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) hopes the trail will provide wonderful recreational opportunities for locals and tourists, while protecting the natural resources of the Adirondacks.

SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) has announced a new program that allows students to spend a full semester living and studying in the heart of the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park.

Offered in the fall of 2013, students will live and learn at ESF's Newcomb Campus on the 15,000-acre Huntington Wildlife Forest.

Can you imagine driving along a snowy road in the Adirondacks and then seeing a snowman over 11 stories tall rising from the horizon

Well, you just might if you're driving in Long Lake, NY during Winter Wacky Week.

On Wednesday, February 20, sculptors will be attempting to construct a snowman that is over 114 feet tall to be considered the world's tallest snowman.
