You are all invited to celebrate National Trails Day®  with ADK on June 1. ADK will be hosting ten different trail projects that vary in difficulty to ensure there is something for everybody.

This year’s event will take place in Cranberry Lake, NY.  ADK is excited to host this event and to be partnering with Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 6, Five Ponds Partners, ESF Ranger School, and Cranberry Lake Boat Club. Trail projects will take place in the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest, Five Ponds Wilderness Area, and the Conifer Emporium Easement

ADK is offering free camping at the Cranberry Lake State Campground for all registered participants on both Friday and Saturday nights (ADK has reserved a set number of sites).

On Friday afternoon at 3:30 there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Lost Pond Interpretative trail.  In the evening from 6-8 PM, there will be a social gathering for trail volunteers with snacks and beverages in the Campground Pavilion. 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, NY for a recognition dinner.  Look forward to a delicious meal, live music, and fun prizes.
