Thank you all for the insight and information. I guess I need to be reminded that the Adirondack Park is not just one giant public land. It is subdivided by many private land owners, including large companies that use it for profit. I grew up in the suburbs of Albany not that long ago (late 80's and 90's). There was a lot of untouched wilderness and great places to hike, bike and camp. Sadly this is not the case anymore as farmers have sold off to developers and woods have be cleared. My own parents and friends parents are those people. I have seen what it does and I just somehow had the feeling that the Adirondacks were different. I do understand that they have better zoning laws and stricter environmental policies which make it hard for such developments to occur.
