    Celebrating 90 Years on the N-P Trail

    The Adirondack Mountain Club is partnering with the Northville Merchants Association, the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Northville-Placid Trail.

    There are many events scheduled, including a wide variety of volunteer trails projects, most notably helping to reroute a section of the N-P Trail off of the road and into the Shaker Mountain Wild Forest. Along with the volunteer trail projects, a guided hike will be available through the rerouted portion of the N-P Trail completed last summer by ADK’s Professional Trail Crew.

    On Saturday, the Village of Northville will be hosting a number of different activities and dedication in conjunction with the volunteer trail projects, including family-friendly activities, craft vendors, and exhibits. At 3:30 p.m. that day in Northville’s Waterfront Park, the village will have a ribbon cutting commemorating a rustic new archway at the Park entrance. The DEC will be unveiling a new kiosk that will mark the official beginning – or end point – of the N-P trail.
