2018 Garden Parking /Shuttle Information



             Once again the Town of Keene will manage the Garden Parking Lot in KeeneValley in accordance with an Adopt a Resource Agreement with New York State Department of Conservation.  The Town of Keene will also serve as operator of a public transportation system that will serve hikers and the general public.

             This program was initiated in response to the illegal and unsafe parking that prevailed.  The parking fees pay for attendants on weekends, maintenance and winter snowplowing of the Garden, Rooster Comb and Roaring Brook Parking Lots, and portable toilets.

             Commencing Friday, May 11th, a fee of $10.00 American (Canadian @ $13.00) per calendar day, 12:01 AM to midnight, will be assessed for parking at the Garden Lot.  The daily fee will continue through the month of October.  An attendant will be at the Garden Lot from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays during this period.  Town Employees and DEC Rangers will monitor the lot during the week.


             The shuttle will operate from the Southwest corner of Marcy Field, off Route 73, when the Garden Parking Lot is full, beginning with two Holiday Weekends in May, from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, as follows:

Victoria Day Weekend                    - May 19th, 2oth & 21st        

Memorial Day Weekend                 - May 26th, 27th & 28th  

 Shuttle operation will resume on Saturday, June 16th, operating on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays.  Sunday, October 14th will be the last day of operation. 


A fee of $10.00 American (Canadian @ $13.00) will be charged per person for a round trip.


Thank you for your continued support in this project.  We hope that reasonable management will ensure continued access to the High Peaks Wilderness.
