Chesterfield, NY — Following a month of work by ADK’s (Adirondack Mountain Club’s) professional trail crew, a sustainably-designed reroute of Poke-O-Moonshine’s Ranger Trail is one step closer to completion. A complete overhaul of one of two approaches to the summit, the project has taken eight years to date and involved several trail building organizations. ADK has worked there for seven of those years.
“We are proud to play such a major role in building a safe and sustainable trail up Poke-O-Moonshine,” said Charlotte Staats, ADK Trails Manager. “Well-built trails protect ecosystems by keeping hikers on a safe, navigable path and away from surrounding vegetation. By investing in projects like this one, we ensure that people can explore the Adirondack Park in a way that protects the surrounding environment.”
