ON THE CANOE TRAIL - The Adirondack Canoe Classic runs this weekend, Sept. 6-8. Also known as the 90-Miler, the race course goes from Old Forge to Saranac Lake, and is the first 90 miles of the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the nation’s longest water trail. The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting people to the land and communities of the Adirondacks and northern New England. The group’s eight paddlers in a war canoe are holding a fundraiser during this year’s 90-Miler, with a goal of $10,000. Donations can be made via http://www.crowdrise.com/NFCT-90miler/fundraiser/northernforestcanoet. All proceeds will go directly toward work along the 90-Miler route in New York.
