Al Mackay reached a few new peaks this month.

The Stillwater resident hiked Vermont’s 272-mile Long Trail, all while feeding enterally and while raising money for the Oley Foundation, a non-profit that assists people with intravenous nutrition and enteral feeding.

Oh, and a sprained knee.

Mackay’s motto is “limitations are a state of mind,” and he certainly lived that out along the trail.

The Adirondack 46er is well known not only in the hiking community but in the local business community. Throughout his career, he has owned and/or managed the Luther Forest Corporation and ran Saratoga Water Services, Inc. and the Saratoga Lake Golf Club. He also served on the Zoning Board of Appeals for the Town of Stillwater.
