The impact of new parking restrictions in the Adirondacks

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) New parking restrictions added to Adirondack hiking regions in May are getting mixed results.

Based on trailhead sign-ins, hiking traffic has increased by nearly 77 percent in the Adirondack region.

The Department of Environmental Conservation polices the area and enforces parking restrictions along roads like Route 73, which winds through the High Peaks region of the park.
