ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Hunters have improved access to nearly 25,000 acres of forest preserve and conservation easement lands in the Adirondacks, with new roads and other backcountry facilities.

State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens says DEC crews worked over the past few months to open roads in time for big game season in the Northern Zone, which opened Saturday.

New roads allow motor vehicle access to the 18,000-acre Kushaqua Tract Conservation Easement Lands in Franklin County and the 1,600-acre public use area of the Township 19 Tract Conservation Easement Lands in Hamilton County.

In addition, in the Essex Chain Lakes Complex gates have been opened to allow increased access to Camp Six Road in Newcomb and Gooley Park in Indian Lake.
