LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — The Cobble Hill trail in Lake Placid will be closed Monday, September 18, through Thursday, September 21, to allow a professional trail crew to do rock and drainage work. The trail will re-open Friday, September 22.
The work is part of a multi-year project to make the hiking path safer and more enjoyable for hikers of a wide range of ages, experience and ability.
This community-led initiative is a partnership between Northwood School, the Town of North Elba, the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, Paul Smith’s College, the Lake Placid 9’er hiking challenge, the Barkeater Trails Alliance, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Adirondack Land Trust and private landowners. The project is funded by grants from North Elba LEAF, New York State Conservation Partnership Program, and gifts from community members.
