Leave No Trace

Adirondack Mountain Club is a partner with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.

Leave No Trace LogoLeave No Trace is a national and international program designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts with their decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they hike, camp, picnic, snowshoe, run, bike, hunt, paddle, ride horses, fish, ski. or climb. The program strives to educate all those who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations. Read the Leave No Trace Principles.

Leave No Trace Courses

Adirondack Mountain Club is one of seven national providers of Leave No Trace Master Educator courses. ADK also provides Leave No Trace Trainer courses, as well as offering Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops.

Master Educator courses are typically five days in length and designed for people who are actively teaching others backcountry skills or providing recreation information to the public. Trainer courses provide introductory training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics in a condensed two-day format. Awareness Workshops include any formal Leave No Trace presentation that is one day or less in length. All of ADK's guided trips adhere to these principles, providing another great opportunity to learn about Leave No Trace.
