Just a reminder about which trails are closed and how to get to Lake Desolation. When coming from Sacandage on C8, at SR06 take the left towards the firetower side of the mountain on S86. At SR05 take the right on C8 towards the old ski hill trail, however you must now take S87 at SR25 because C8 to the ski hill is CLOSED (KEEP OUT!!!). This will then bring you C8A (and it’s the only place it will bring you as all other trails are CLOSED this year due to logging, KEEP OUT!!!).
Also be reminded that ALL access to Ormsbee road is PERMANENTLY CLOSED. Do no try and enter from there or you could be ticketed for trespassing. The same is true for the Ski Hill Section of C8. KEEP OUT!!!
Stay off ALL plowed roads. If you are on a plowed road, you are on a CLOSED trail. These areas are being monitors with cameras and DEC will issue tickets based on camera footage! KEEP OUT!!!
Your cooperation with closures ensures we will keep our trails open. If people are ignoring them the entire system is in danger of closing this year. The logging company owns the land and we must do what they say. If you can’t abide, please stay home.
