Potential Partners:

  • American Trails is a national, nonprofit organization working on behalf of all trail interests, including hiking, bicycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, water trails, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, trail motorcycling, ATVs, snowmobiling and four-wheeling. American Trails members want to create and protect America's network of interconnected trails.
  • The Rails to Trails Conservancy helps develop recreational paths all over the USA and developed the complete plan for the first segment of our trail, from Lake Placid to Tupper Lake with phase two Tupper to Old Forge.
  • Parks and Trails New York has helped develop more than 1,500 miles of greenways, bike paths, and trails throughout New York State. They are helping ARTA by acting as our fiscal agent for donations while we await formal approval of our 501(c)3 status.
