Don’t end your hike with a parking ticket

To avoid congestion and potentially dangerous situations, parking on the shoulder of Route 73 between Chapel Pond and the Rooster Comb trailhead is off limits. Parking near the Cascade Mountain trailhead is limited to designated parking areas and sections of the shoulder where vehicles can park out of the lane of travel. Do not park where signs prohibit parking. 

Roadside parking is also prohibited on the following roads in the town of Keene: Au Sable Road, St. Huberts Road, Market Street, Adirondack Street, and Mason Young Lane in Keene Valley.
