    Awesome ruling!!! The nut job greenies have lost touch with reality!!!! No one disrespects the beauty of the Adirondacks. WE THE RESIDENTS respect our lands, but to stop snowmobiles is insane!!! I can’t wait to snowmobile the trail as soon as possible!!!!

    Guess that snowmobile trail bridge over the Hudson is the next nail in the coffin of the tree huggers to fall soon!

    Snowmobiling hurts absolutely nothing in the Adirondacks! If the Greenies had their way nobody would be allowed. Good for some good rulings for change!

    Finally glad to see that common sense was used over the radicals that tried to sue the State over this. Kudo’s to the Judge.

    Name calling is how you celebrate??

      That is how anti-environment lobbyists and many special interest groups operate. Identify an enemy and attempt to discredit them through playground rhetoric. A lot of that going around.

    This tree hugger thinks this is ok. The ADK needs to allow for all reasonable uses of this amazing place, and allowing snowmachines on trails that have been used as such in the past is fine with me. Hopefully everyone will respect the area and not trash it like many high-access areas (used by hikers and snow travelers) are trashed. Sledding adds income to a depressed area of the country, and I doubt the area will be spoiled by their passing through. Sure, the air is blue for a bit while the machines pass, and the noise lasts a few seconds, but the place is still the deep woods once they move on.

    The name calling is ridiculous, though, folks. Act like civilized humans.
