Operation Lifesaver This portion of the ATV Trail uses an abandoned railroad bed that runs adjacent to the St. Lawrence & Atlantic Railroad (SLR). Because of the speed and sheer weight of the through freight trains operated by that railroad, trespassing on the adjacent active railroad track is both hazardous and illegal!
