TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - There is a new path to the summit of Goodman Mountain in the Adirondacks.
The 1.6-mile trail near Tupper Lake was officially opened Tuesday.
The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that the trail was constructed by 26 state Department of Environmental Conservation staff members with help from 16 volunteers who cleared brush and built a 32-foot-long wooden bridge.
The 2,176-foot peak is named after slain civil rights activist Andrew Goodman, whose family owned a home nearby. Goodman was killed in Mississippi in 1964 by members of the Ku Klux Klan along with two other activists.
