Bikeway could be a treasure

I’m glad to see the Explorer supporting turning the Adirondack railroad line into a bicycle/recreational trail.

As bicyclists who take weeks-long bike trips in the Adirondacks, my riding buddy and I would love to see a stone-dust trail to Lake Placid originating in Remsen. That would be one of the most beautiful trails in the United States. A trail like this would benefit a lot more people and the economy than the railroad. And the salvage value of the steel rails would offset a lot of the cost.
