NORTHVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - More than 23 miles of new trail has been completed on the Northville-Placid trail traversing the Adirondacks, eliminating about 15 miles of road walking along the 135-mile route.

The work was done over the past six years by the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the Adirondack Mountain Club.

The trail goes through the heart of the Adirondacks from Northville in Fulton County to the village of Lake Placid, passing through Piseco, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Long Lake on the way.

The most recent section of reroute, completed this summer, replaces 7.6 miles of walking along Route 30 and the Benson Road in the towns of Northampton and Benson, with an 8.6-mile trail through the Shaker Mountain Wild Forest.
