Trail would boost Adirondacks

I often travel to Burlington, VT, and the province of Quebec when I want an off-road bicycling outing—places that are safe and amenable to biking. Wouldn’t it be pleasant to have that experience in the Adirondacks?

That’s why it’s an excellent idea to create a rail trail from Lake Placid to Tupper Lake and put on hold upgrading the track from Tupper to Big Moose. Also a rail trail between North Creek and Tahawus would offer self-propelled people another opportunity to enjoy the Adirondacks.

I live near the Great Allegheny Passage in Pittsburgh and have observed the heavy usage this trail gets. It’s both scenic and safe.

Thanks for advocating for a similar experience for both locals and visitors to the Adirondacks.
