<h2>Help Create the 55-Mile Hudson River Bike Trail from Saratoga Springs to North Creek</h2> <br /><br /> A tremendous opportunity exists for the communities in the southern Adirondack Park to build what would be one of the great multi-use public recreation trails in New York and the eastern U.S. Protect the Adirondacks is advocating for the transition of the dormant 55-mile-long Saratoga and North Creek Railway to a public multi-use trail that would connect more than a dozen communities between Saratoga Springs and North Creek. More than 30 miles of this trail would be located along the Hudson River, where each bend in the river provides a different great view.

<h2>Make Safe Boating Mandatory</h2> <br /><br /> Protect the Adirondacks is advocating for a mandatory boat inspection and decontamination program for the Adirondack Park. The Adirondacks is the last remaining area in New York State with a high number of lakes and ponds that are free of harmful aquatic invasive species, such as Eurasian watermilfoil, zebra mussels, Asian clam, water chestnut, spiny waterflea, among many others. We need to build a comprehensive system across the Adirondack Park that includes mandatory boat inspections, decontamination stations, and public education to protect Adirondack waters. We need to do everything possible to protect the waters of the Adirondack Park.

<h2>Demand Improvements in the Management of the High Peaks Wilderness Area</h2> <br /><br /> The crowds hiking in the High Peaks are at an all-time high. We need to act now to protect the natural resources of the High Peaks and the wilderness character of the area. Protect the Adirondacks is advocating to improve the management of the High Peaks, Hurricane and Giant Mountain Wilderness areas. These are the most popular Forest Preserve areas in the Adirondacks. These areas need a comprehensive management program to address overuse and damage to hiking trails and natural resources. It is imperative that the state invest in building sustainable trails, public education, Rangers and other management personnel, and in new facilities such as a High Peaks Information Center, safe parking lots and new trailheads.
