Today the CAA continues to manage, sponsor and support many events year-round because, even now, some visitors to the Central Adirondack region still enjoy being tempted.
The CAA service area extends from Forestport, along the Rt 28 corridor through Old Forge, Inlet, Raquette Lake, Blue Mountain Lake to Indian Lake and along Rt. 30 corridor to Long Lake. We encompass three counties (Onedia, Herkimer and Hamilton) and five townships (Forestport, Webb, Inlet, Indian Lake and Long Lake).
Though we are an events-driven organization, the Central Adirondack Association also has the distinction of being at the core of the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic (CAT) Byway. Why is this so advantageous? There is enormous potential for the CAA to use the Central Adirondack Trail Byway label to better appeal to and connect with travelers, Partnering with other CAT Byway communities, we are in a position to benefit from regional collaboration, branding, marketing techniques, and resource interpretation. The goal of the Byway promotion is to help increase the number of visitors and amount of visitor spending in villages, towns, and cities that rely on tourism dollars which certainly mirrors the goal of the CAA!
The CAT Byway is an east-west travel corridor which stretches 153 miles from the western gateway in Rome, east along Routes 365 and 365/12 to Alder Creek where it continues through communities along Route 28 north to Blue Mountain Lake.
There, Route 28 begins its southern and westward direction to Warrensburg, where the Trail changes to move south along Route 9 to its eastern gateway in Glens Falls.
