ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state Department of Environmental Conservation is taking public comments through Sept. 18 on a plan for a northern Adirondack forest tract that will allow extensive use of vehicles including ATVs.

The management plan is for the 19,000-acre Kushaqua Tract conservation easement in Franklin County, which is actively logged by Lyme Timber Company.

The tract includes more than 130 miles of roads and 31 private camps. The DEC plan includes maintaining existing roads, building six new parking lots and adding four new trails and 12 new campsites.

Motorized access will include 26 miles of three-season automobile roads, 30 miles of ATV roads and trails, 30 miles of roads open to snowmobiles, and a dock and boardwalk on Mountain Pond.
