National Trails Day®
June 6th, 2015
You are all invited to celebrate National Trails Day®
with the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) on June 6th. ADK will be hosting eight different trail projects that vary in difficulty to ensure there is something for everybody.
This year’s event will take place in Wanakena, NY. ADK is very happy to be returning to the Cranberry Lake/Wanakena area for the fifth time and to be partnering with the Five Ponds Partners, SUNY-ESF Ranger School, and Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 6 for this event. Trail projects will take place in the Five Ponds Wilderness and Cranberry Lake Wild Forest, with two of the projects making improvements to the Cranberry Lake 50
The DEC is offering free camping at Cranberry Lake Public Campground
for all registered participants on both Friday and Saturday nights (ADK has reserved a set number of sites).
On Friday evening from 7-9PM
, there will be a social gathering for trail volunteers with snacks and beverages at the pavilion in the Cranberry Lake Campground. Information about Saturday's trail projects will be available along with a chance to meet crew leaders and fellow volunteers.
At the end of the work day on Saturday, all trail volunteers are invited to the Pine Cone Grill
in Wanakena for a recognition dinner. The Pine Cone is located on a picturesque section of the Oswegatchie River. Look forward to a delicious meal, live music, and fun prizes.
