|Trail on Colden before bog bridges|
By Seth JonesIf you’ve climbed to the summit of Mt. Colden over the past decade you've probably experienced that the trail on the summit had become mostly comprised of boot sucking, Adirondack mud. What is different about this muddy Adirondack trail is that it traverses through New York’s rarest ecosystem, the alpine ecosystem, a fragile plant community that is only found on 16 of New York’s highest summits. To help protect this special natural resource, Adirondack Mountain Club with the support of The Adirondack Forty-Sixers and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has started a three year trail project on the summit of Mt. Colden.
