The Town of Long Lake is excited to announce that they have received funding for Wayfinding and History Kiosks: Finding Our Place in the Woods from Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts Program.
This project will allow the Town of Long Lake to install historical, interpretive maps and kiosks at two new trailheads including the Mt. Sabattis Mountain Bike Park and a new trail to be announced and opened this summer. The signs will provide hikers and bikers of all age’s insight and perspective on the Adirondacks, the waterways and the place-based history of the area.
“We are thrilled to accept this award from Generous Acts to help enhance our expanding trail assets and outdoor recreational experiences. We look forward to telling the story of these newly added trails with our kiosks and know they will enrich the lives of our community members and visitors,” said Alexandra Roalsvig, Long Lake Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director.
The Town of Long Lake, located in Hamilton County, is a year-round Adirondack family destination, bursting with activities and nature for all. The town encompasses two well-known lakes, Long Lake and Raquette Lake, and waterways including the Raquette River, the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the 90 Miler Route and hiking trails. The Town provides locals and visitors with the quintessential Adirondack getaway and is expanding recreational trails available within the Central Adirondacks.
