New York State Holds Hearings on Managing High Peaks Wilderness Traffic

New York State takes action to address the increasing traffic in the High Peaks Wilderness of the Adirondacks. With millions of annual visitors and overflowing trailheads, stakeholder recommendations have prompted the Department of Environmental Conservation to hire a consultant and initiate a two-year process of public hearings. The goal is to develop a Visitor Use Management Plan to promote sustainable recreation. The first hearing took place in Saranac Lake, inviting public comments and recommendations. Stay informed and be part of shaping the future of Adirondacks recreation.
