A Revolution Rail Announcement, Restaurant Update & News in the Arts World
Revolution Rail Opens Up a 4th Route
Revolution Rail announced on Sunday that they’re adding another railbike ride in the Adirondacks! Stony Creek Railbiking will consist of an 8-mile roundtrip along the Hudson River, with riders starting at the Thurman Depot and making their way to 1,000 Acres Ranch.
The other three routes are the North Bridge Run (shown above), South River Run, and Hadley Run, the last of which offers views of the confluence of the Hudson River and Sacandaga River. All offer a unique, breathtaking experience seeing the Adirondacks in a way most don’t get to.
OP Frederick’s is Temporarily Closed
OP Frederick’s posted on Tuesday that they will be closed for spring cleaning through April 12, to reopen on April 13. Make sure to visit this Chestertown favorite in the near future!
