North Country Trail Association files lawsuit over New York handling of trail segment

A national hiking group, the The North Country Trail Association,  is suing the New York state office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, along with a local snowmobile group, over a mile of trail built by NCT volunteers that the state has turned over to snowmobilers to improve. The Oneida Daily Dispatch reports that NCTA Executive Director, Bruce Matthews, called the trail segment “critical” to making a connection with the Adirondacks. The suit claims the snowmobile work destroys the footpath experience for hikers. The North Country National Scenic Trail is a 4,600 mile footpath connecting New York and North Dakota.
