Adirondacks Still Feeling Effects of Winter with Road Closing
The Adirondacks are still feeling effects from winter with a road closing. As winter made its slow turn to spring this year, many of the trails and roads in the Park stayed snow-covered and muddy later than usual. The late-season impact is still being felt as the New York Department of Environmental Conservation closes a road to weekday traffic.
Gulf Brook Road leading to Boreas Ponds will be temporarily closed on weekdays for repairs and improvements beginning at sundown this Sunday, June 24. The DEC will reopen the road to motor traffic at 5 p.m. each Friday through sundown the following Sunday. You can still travel the road by horseback, bicycle or simply walking if you remain cautious near construction operations.
Even when open, the DEC suggests only using 4 Wheel Drive SUV's, Pickups and high clearance vehicles. In the video below, the Adirondack Explorer website shared a look at the road's current condition.
