Time: TBD

Get the dirt on recent trail upgrades from professional trail builders Adeline Clayton and Charlotte Staats, members of the Adirondack Land Trust’s Next Gen Council. They will share their expertise on a hike to Cobble Hill, where the land trust has been working with community partners to a popular trail safer, more enjoyable, and environmentally sustainable.

This is not a trail work day but an opportunity to walk a new trail and learn what makes a good trail a good trail and why it’s important.
