Section of St. Lawrence trail is ready to go


PARISHVILLE — The northeastern section of St. Lawrence County’s multiuse trail is ready to go after hunting season is over.

“That’s the culmination of a lot of work,” said Legislator Alex A. MacKinnon, R-Fowler, the Board of Legislature’s representative on a trail committee.

The signs are up and a roughly 50-mile stretch from Parishville to the Franklin County line, including a pilot trail, will open soon.

“The rule for the trails is that during hunting season, the trails are closed,” Mr. MacKinnon said.

The trail, meant for many uses — such as snowmobiling, hiking, dog sledding, biking and riding all-terrain vehicles — eventually will provide a corridor from Lewis County through St. Lawrence County to Franklin County. The North Country Regional Economic Development Council awarded the county $500,000 toward the trail system, which organizers hope will be a draw for tourism and recreation.

The other two sections of the trail will open after various problems are worked out.
