Such a trail benefits the region in many ways.
It offers leisure activities in the form of hiking, mountain biking, fishing, paddle sports, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing; history as it covers land that has been inhabited in one form or another for thousands of years, and it strengthens trade as another major tourist attraction for the north of the country.
As officials said during the recent smooth opening of the new spur, the North Country is a four-season destination and a functioning river trail will suit the area well.
It is not easy to complete such a project as a new trail spur, and it does not happen overnight. It takes the full collaboration of public and private partners to achieve this.
Fortunately, the City of Plattsburgh, City of Plattsburgh, Town of Schuyler Falls, Town of Saranac, County of Clinton, and the State have all collaborated with Saranac River Trail Inc., a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, to get the track off and running.
