ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Advocates for more miles of outdoor trails are heading to New York state's capitol.

The outdoor enthusiasts will promote a plan Monday to build on the Empire State Trail. When completed by the end next year, the Empire State Trail is to be a continuous 750-mile route spanning the state from New York City to Canada and Buffalo to Albany.

The "Trails Across New York" campaign aims to expand upon the Empire State Trail and develop additional multi-use trails connecting to surrounding communities.

Advocates and lawmakers will outline their agenda on Monday morning.
