Lake Placid-Saranac Lake Bike Path, Phase II

Organization: Adirondack North Country Association

Year: 2001

Amount: 10000

Status: Project complete

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Lake Placid, NY

This $10,000 grant helped match the Adirondack North Country Association's application for $796,575 in Transportation Enhancements Program funds to build a 9.1-mile rail trail. When complete, the multi-use path will link the communities of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake through the Remsen/Lake Placid corridor, which was is currently limited to a highway with minimal shoulders, discouraging bike/ped traffic.
