1:30 pm - July 11: Northville-Placid Trail: Wakely Pond - To celebrate the centennial of the Northville-Placid Trail, ADKX is collaborating with naturalist and Adirondack Guide, Ed Kanze, to lead a series of nature walks along the central portions of this historic trail. On this easy ramble, we will talk about the history of the trail, stroll on dirt roads, look for flora and fauna, and visit beautiful Wakely Pond. Directions: From Blue Mountain Lake, drive South on Rt. 30 to the outskirts of the village of Indian Lake. Just before a cemetery on the right, turn right on the Cedar River Road. Drive about twelve miles down this somewhat rough road to the parking lot at Wakely Dam. Meet at the trailhead at 1:30 pm. What to Bring: Proper footwear for a hike like sneakers or boots, appropriate clothing, water and snacks if desired. Registration required for this hike. Directions and more information will be sent once you register. Click HERE to register Ed Kanze is a naturalist, author, and Adirondack Guide with more than forty years’ experience leading walks in wild places.
