While the ADK RR has been a wonderful experience for the last few years whether you take the trip from Utica up (and what a gorgeous station in Utica) or take one of the special trains (ice cream sundaes -- yum or paddle/bike) from Thendara it has always been a treat and a great value. This year the line has expanded to go to Big Moose! This stretch takes you into the deep woods so you get to experience the true ADK wilderness as never before. You can even sign up (think it is weekends only) for a brunch at Big Moose Station which is not as good as it could be considering that the staff there knows exactly how many people to expect.
Stay tuned...supposedly in the works is a connection from Big Moose to Tupper Lake so that you could eventually go all the way from Utica to Lake Placid! This could be a wonderful asset for hikers, paddlers and bicyclists.
Good value, great staff and great views for a decent price.
