Visit the Saranac River Trail at the Clinton County Fair

At this year’s Clinton County Fair [July 28-August 2, 2015], the expanded Saranac River Trail is going to run right through the center of the Fairgounds! Visit us in Building 31. Give suggestions and comments, and have your photo taken in the "What kind of trail user are you?" Photo Booth. You'll also be able to review maps that display information about the potential alignments for the expanded trail and provide your insights on these options. Be sure to get a project brochure when you stop by so that you can learn more about this exciting project.
