A group in the Adirondacks is advocating for what it says could be a prime recreational and economic opportunity for the region.  Adirondack Recreational Trail Advocates wants to convert rail tracks in the central Adirondacks into a recreational trail. But it faces opposition from the rail company that wants to restore the tracks.
