Ride from Albany to Northville August 31?
Hello! Planning a thru-hike, and will be coming up from Washington D.C. by public transport.

Anyone have ideas how to get to the trailhead from the train station in Albany?

I know about Broadwing Adventures but they seem more appropriate for the northern section.

Thanks much,

Alternate route
I will be heading to Northville on the 1st to hike my 2nd through hike of the NLP. I will take an Amtrak to Amsterdam and either take a taxi to Northville or take a Gloversville Transit bus to Gloversville and then take a cab to Northville. This is the way I got to Northville the 1st time I through hiked. Hope that helps

I am trying to get up for a through hike from NYC next week. Any transport from Saratoga Springs to the trailhead? Is there a good resupply point midway? Is this even a good idea? Thanks for any help.

Have you tried the Northville-Placid Trail Facebook page?
There is by far a lot more NPT info, photos, videos, & stories being shared over there than here.
Sorry I can't help any further.
Good luck!
