Walkers bring business

Dennis Sullivan’s thoughts about “arranged” walks are intriguing [Letter to editor, July/August 2016]. Two years ago, I walked coast to coast in England along Hadrian’s Path and had the same excellent experience he described. A similar arrangement in the Adirondacks might boost the economies of many of the villages.

I disagree with George Locker’s comments about biking on trails [Letter to the editor, July/August 2016]. Trail bikes often travel quite slowly; there’s not much danger of a collision. I’ve experienced them on the Colorado Trail and on the hundred-mile trail around Mont Blanc. But trails should be hardened if they are to be included, since bikes can tear up the path.
