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.

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.
