  1. Lake Placid
  2. Jay 
  3. Keene 
  4. Glens Falls (just outside Park boundaries)
  5. Old Forge
  6. Saranac Lake

Only 1 Hiker Rescued on Eclipse Day

The DEC warned hikers to stay off the trails during the eclipse, in part because of concerns of trail overcrowding, which can lead to destruction of trailside vegetation. 

According to New York Upstate, most outdoor recreationists did avoid the trails on Monday, April 8, with only one rescue reported.

The rescue happened after the eclipse, at 4:32pm, when a 29-year hiker from Elmira injured her leg near the summit of Mount Saint Regis, considered a moderately challenging route.
