Railside trail is a dead horse

It's time for the Tri-Lakes area to reject failure and embrace success.Our newly formed citizen group, Adirondack Recreational Trail Advocates, opposes current plans to build a recreational trail that parallels the Adirondack Scenic Railroad from Lake Placid to Ray Brook, a project that would incur endless costs on local taxpayers for maintaining this 5-mile trail through wetlands, essentially a "trail to nowhere." The town of North Elba will end up stuck with a trail built on fill and boardwalk, with the continuing cost burden on local taxpayers to maintain the trail. Everything considered, it is a terrible compromise.
