15th edition of the most comprehensive trail guide to the High Peaks region (Map not included)
The new 15th edition of High Peaks Trails (published in 2021) is the flagship of ADK’s Forest Preserve Series of guidebooks and includes the 46 highest peaks in the Adirondacks.
Since the last edition was published, 47,000 acres of Forest Preserve have been added to the High Peaks Wilderness Area. The 15th edition addresses the significant zone changes that have been implemented by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, as well as new acquisitions, new trails, reroutes, restored and altered trailheads, and parking regulations.
Notable changes include Boreas Ponds access information, closure of the Porter Mt. trail from the Garden, a new route to Allen Mt., numerous additions to the Champlain Valley trail network, and a whole new Northwestern Section, covering trails in the remote territory east of Route 30 north of Paul Smiths. Also new is a chart comparing approaches to Mount Marcy. The book is also smaller in size, to fit more easily into a backpack. Each trail is keyed to indicate its location on Trails Illustrated Maps 742 and 746.
Edited by Tony Goodwin.
