Adirondack Mountain Club - Black River Chapter

Conservation

Our chapter maintains 13 miles of cross-country ski and hiking trails on Route 177 between Rodman and Barnes Corners, east of Adams Center, exit 45 off of Route 81, which includes the beautiful Inman Gulf Nature Trail.  Our chapter members are involved in many projects to help the environment.   Our “Adopt-A-Highway”  clean-up  program involves a two-mile stretch of Rt. 177 in that same area;  we have joined forces with the “Center for Marine Conservation”  and clean up Southwicks Beach along Lake Ontario every May.

Over the past few years our chapter has promoted, hiked and developed a four mile section of abandoned NY Central railroad along the Black River, and now have it listed nationally as a Millennium Community Trail. NYS Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation is improving the trail through a grant and plan to pave it. Once completed, this multiuse trail/ canoeing, kayking venue will join Watertown and the village of Black River at Poors Island; which Niagara Mohawk developed into a picnic site.
