A Reservation to Hike

New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation and the Ausable Club have teamed up to test a pilot program that requires hikers to reserve parking spots at the Adirondack Mountain Reserve lot in Keene Valley. It’s one of the steps being taken to try to help better manage the growing crowds of hikers using some of the most popular trailheads in the Adirondack High Peaks. AMR’s John Schuler and Keene Town Supervisor Joe Pete Wilson give us their assessment of the first year of this three-year experiment. To learn more: www.hikeamr.org
