Veterans sue over Adirondack wilderness access

Lake Placid, New York - August 25, 2010

A coalition of mobility-impaired veterans are suing for floatplane access to high mountain lakes and ponds in the Adirondacks.

Right now motorized access is restricted in the wilderness except in emergency situations.

The six veterans are suing the Adirondack Park Agency and the Department of Environmental Conservation, arguing the law discriminates against people who can't walk or paddle in.

The group includes veterans from the Iraq and Vietnam Wars as well as two pilots.
