AS ADK (ADIRONDACK MOUNTAIN CLUB) CONTINUES TO MONITOR THE SPREAD OF NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19), ADK HAS DEVELOPED THE FOLLOWING RISK MANAGEMENT PROTOCOLS FOR IN-PERSON PROGRAMS WHICH INCLUDE OUR DAY HIKE AND TRAILLESS BACKPACKING SERIES. THE RISK OF CONTRACTING COVID-19 DURING AN ADK PROGRAM CANNOT BE ELIMINATED, BUT WE HAVE IDENTIFIED MITIGATION STRATEGIES TO REDUCE THAT RISK IN A PRE-VACCINE ENVIRONMENT. WITH THOSE STRATEGIES IN PLACE, WE BELIEVE THE RISK CAN BE MANAGED APPROPRIATELY.

Winter Trailless Day Hikes

Whether you are working on your Winter 46, uncomfortable approaching the high peaks on your own, or just looking for a great winter hike in the mountains, these one-day guided trips are for you.  Round-trip distances are: Esther (4,240′) 6.6 miles; Phelps (4,161′) 8.8 miles; Street & Nye (4,166′ & 3,895′) 9 miles; and Tabletop (4,427′) 10 miles.  All hikes are strenuous and will require a full day of snowshoeing.

Cost: $80 (members receive 10% discount); includes instruction.
