National Trails Day: Archway Progress

While the last stubborn snowbanks finally disappeared and the days slowly got warmer, the Northville Merchants Association was busy preparing for a very special event.

June 7th and 8th will be a day to remember in Northville's Waterfront Park. The Adirondack Mountain Club, American Hiking Society, and Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Northville-Placid Trail. Among plenty of other exciting events, the festival will feature a ceremonial presentation of the new archway spanning the entrance to the park. The towering cedar logs will serve as the official starting point of the 133 mile Northville-Placid Trail. Check back soon for more information on events, activities, and archway progress!
