NEW SCOTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - A popular state park trail beneath a cliff face offering panoramic views of the Albany area is re-opening after a project to make it safer.

The Indian Ladder Trail at John Boyd Thacher State Park is reopening Saturday. The trail was closed as workers removed loose rock from slopes along the trail.

Last summer, a woman hiking along the trail was seriously injured when she was struck by falling rocks.
