Roosevelt-Marcy Trail

Teddy Roosevelt loved the Adirondacks. Here he grounded himself in nature and formed the convictions that made him a pioneering conservationist and protector of American natural resources. Having hiked to the summit of Mt. Marcy, New York's tallest peak, Roosevelt was informed that President McKinley, earlier shot by an assassin, was sinking fast. The outdoorsman and  Vice President descended quickly, and took a break-neck wagon ride in darkness, over rough roads, to reach the North Creek Train Station.

Now, you can ride a train from the same station where Roosevelt learned that he was the new President of the United States.
