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.

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.
