Field Programs

The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) and its members have been maintaining and building trails in the wild lands of New York for over 90 years. In fact, one of ADK’s first major projects was the construction of the approximately 133-mile long Northville-Placid Trail in 1923. Beginning with this major trail project, ADK volunteers and employees have spent countless hours creating the trails and lean-tos that we have become so fond of.

CaptionMission Statement
The mission of the Adirondack Mountain Club's Field Programs is to promote land stewardship through the development and maintenance of a quality, all-encompassing trail system, while encouraging responsible use and protection of New York State’s Forest Preserve, parks, and other wild lands and waterways with a worldwide application.
Vision Statement
To develop, maintain, and complete a sustainable, first-class trail system in concert with public and private entities that includes not only hiking trails, but also alpine areas, canoe carries, mountain bike trails, ski trails, lean-tos, campsites, and trailheads throughout New York State’s Forest Preserve, parks, and other wild lands and waterways. With a developed constituency of dedicated staff and volunteers, the natural resource will be protected through professional trail management and field based educational programs. As a result, there will be safe, accessible trail corridors and backcountry facilities available for the public.
