The trail around Avalanche Lake will be closed from August 15 to August 25. There will be no through access.
During this time the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Student Conservation Association (SCA) Adirondack Corps will be working on the Hitch-Up Matildas and hikers will not be able to pass through Avalanche Lake. Access through Avalanche Pass to the head of the lake and from Lake Colden to the outlet will be possible. Signage will be posted at Avalanche Camps and Lake Colden, as well as Upper Works, Adirondak Loj and South Meadows.
Please plan ahead for trips during this time period. Also note that the trail from Feldspar to Lake Arnold has some flooded portions of the trail that are worsened with rain.
