A look back at 30 years along the Northville- Placid Trail through the eyes of Long Laker Matt Burnett. From his childhood in Long Lake to adventures as a DEC Assistant Forest Ranger patrolling along the Cold River, the NPT serves as the backdrop for his work as an Adirondack Artist, Environmental Steward, and outdoor enthusiast. Stories and pictures touching on the history, evolution, and generations living and experiencing life along Long Lake and the Cold River, from early college years to recent youth trips with the Northern Forest Explorers.
