RAY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - Adirondack Park Agency commissioners are expected to vote on 10 resolutions to classify new state land in segments that range from primitive to wild forest to wilderness.
The Plattsburgh Press-Republican reports that one resolution to be considered Friday for the Essex Chain Lakes parcel would remove motorized boat access to a string of forest ponds. But the paper said detailed classification of the former Finch, Pruyn & Co. land also would add a narrow band of wild forest along former logging roads, and that corridor could become a snowmobile trail connecting Newcomb and Indian Lake.
The potential for a wintertime recreation trail drew much discussion at the APA meeting Thursday, but the final use will be determined by the State Department of Environmental Conservation in the Unit Management Plan.
