Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) offered an advanced teen backpacking program for the first time this summer.  This inaugural group hiked over 45 miles from Long Lake to the Adirondak Loj.   Starting their trip on the Northville-Placid Trail they turned off of it at Duck Hole and headed back to the Adirondak Loj through Indian Pass.  This program not only focuses on a successful, fun trip but has an emphasis on developing trip planning, leadership and backcountry skills for the next generation of environmental stewards. Here are a few photos from our adventure.
