The Adirondack Land Trust is beyond thrilled that the Northern Border Regional Commission has awarded a $3 million grant to support accessible wildland trails at preserves near Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. This is the single largest grant in the Adirondack Land Trust’s history and speaks to the critical need for accessible wildland trails to broaden access to nature for underserved residents and visitors. We are deeply grateful to the commission for investing in the vitality of Adirondack communities.

The grant will fund accessible wildland trails at Glenview Preserve, a 238-acre property located along New York State Route 86 in Harrietstown, and a 187-acre preserve at the corner of State Route 73 and the Adirondack Loj Road in North Elba. Learn more about these preserves at our Community Project Updates. Please note that both preserves are closed to the public at this time but their incredible roadside views are always open for all to enjoy.
