2015 Guided Hikes and Backpacking Trips
High Peaks Day Hikes

High Peaks Day Hikes
Whether you are working on your 46, uncomfortable approaching the High Peaks on your own, or just looking for a great hike in the mountains, these one-day guided trips are for you. We'll discuss safe low-impact travel, route selection, off trail navigation, and the rich natural history of the Adirondacks. All hikes are strenuous and will require a full day of hiking.
Cost: $75 (Members receive 10% discount), includes guide and instruction.

Backpacking Trips

Trailless Peak Backpacking
These trips are designed for those who have experience hiking and backpacking and who are looking for guided backcountry experience in pursuit of climbing the summits of the High Peaks. The group will hike into a base camp from which they’ll be guided up the "trailless” peaks. These courses will be a cooperative group camping experience led by a NYS licensed guide with the shared responsibility of camp chores, cooking, and decision-making.
Cost: $199 (Members receive 10% discount); includes instruction, meals, and use of group gear.
