Sky High Update

For those among the crowd slavering to climb on Crane Mountain, Sky High Road has been repaired. It is now in as good a shape as ever, meaning of course, that it’s a rough, steep dirt road typical of southern Adirondack backcountry. I’ve driven back and forth to the trailhead several times now without destroying my lil Elantra, so unless you’re driving a low-rider or just have no clue how to drive rough roads, you should be fine.

A lot of hard work by the Thurman Town Crew, helped extensively by neighboring municipalities like Chestertown, Warrensburg, and Stony Creek, did what neither the State nor the Feds could manage: they pitched in, worked together, and rebuilt sections of every road in Thurman. Forget globalization; localization is the only way to survive up here!
