The Little Ausable River Trail
The Town of Peru has built a chip seal paved trail to offer residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy outdoor activities within a beautiful and varied natural environment. The trail will also protect and interpret the important historic sites of Heyworth/Mason Park and a section of the D&H rail line, both instrumental to the Townís development. 

The trailhead is in Heyworth/Mason Park just off Mason Hill Rd in the hamlet of Peru.
With parking, benches, picnic tables, historic interpretive signage and a beautiful 1836 stone mill, itís a great place to start your adventure.  The trail covers 1.25 miles, from Heyworth/Mason Park to the entrance to Sullivan Park on Route 22.  You can then use the sidewalk to connect back to the trailhead, for a 2.25 mile loop.
(see map)

Itís an interesting trip with massive cottonwoods, a planted pine forest, open fields and the river. It seems to be an excellent birding site as well.  We hope to have several benches installed by June 2015. Enjoy!

Clinton County Trailblazers
Calling all those over 50!!  Looking for something fun and fit to do this summer?  Think about participating on the Trailblazer Challenge.  Walk the seven accessible trails in Clinton County by October 13, 2015 and get a Trailblazer T-shirt and, if among the first 50, a pedometer and walking journal.  But the real prize is checking out some local trails with your friends and family.
The seven trails are:
Hagar Heritage Trail, Plattsburgh
Heritage Trail/Karen Fleury Memorial Bike Bath, Plattsburgh
Terry J. Gordon Recreational Path, Plattsburgh
Point Au Roche Trail, Plattsburgh
Saranac River Trail, Plattsburgh
Silver Lake Bog Trail, Ausable
Little Ausable River Trail, Peru

Two other local trails that can be walked but are not paved and are not part of the Challenge are:
New Land Trust Trails, Saranac
Cadyville Park Trails, Cadyville

Please see the Registration Form, and More Detailed Information about the Trails and the Challenge.
The kick-off will be part of the Clinton Countyís Health Departmentís Longest Day of Play on Friday June 26th. At 8:15am please join us at the Saranac River Trail at the Angel Street entrance.  You donít need to be at the kick-off to participate in the Challenge but it would be fun to start this off all together.  So talk to some friends and get ready to be Trailblazers this summer.
