Shuttle Launch In Essex County

DEC and Essex County are launching a new shuttle route to help manage safe, sustainable visitation to backcountry destinations in the Adirondack High Peaks. The new route builds on the existing Route 73 shuttle and will run on select summer and fall weekends from Frontier Town Gateway in North Hudson to provide convenient and safe transportation to some of the region’s most scenic locations. On August 8 and 15, visitors can board the shuttle at the Frontier Town Gateway to begin their overnight camping trip by thru-hiking one of the most unique wilderness areas without the burden of parking a vehicle at both ends.
