ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Adirondack Park Agency has approved a management plan for new state land in the central Adirondacks that includes a new community-connector snowmobile trail as well as paddling access to the Essex Chain Lakes.

The plan describes a multi-use trail from Indian Lake to Minerva for snowmobiling and other uses, a new bridge over the Cedar River and additional primitive tent sites along the upper Hudson River.

Some roads will be designated for car access.

There’s planned access for people with disabilities to a campsite and waterway access. Tent sites on two lakes are designated for floatplane clients.

The 18,000-acre Essex Chain Lakes tract, including eight namesake lakes, is part of 161,000 acres purchased by The Nature Conservancy from Finch, Pruyn (prine) timber company in 2007.
