May 28, 2010 — Local government leaders in Hamilton County scored a major victory yesterday with the state's decision to reopen the back country road system in the Moose River Plains. The popular roads provide access to some of the most remote areas of the Adirondack Park. But the state Conservation Department announced earlier this month that budget constraints would force them to leave the routes gated.
A deal on the roads came early Thursday, following trips to Albany by North Country leaders. John Frey, town supervisor in Inlet, spoke yesterday with Brian Mann.
