National Trails Day
Save the Date: June 3rd, 2017 – Lake Placid, NY
You are all invited to celebrate National Trails Day® with the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) on June 3rd. ADK will be hosting ten different trail projects that vary in difficulty to ensure there is something for everybody.
This year’s event will take place at the Adirondak Loj, which is located just outside of Lake Placid, NY. ADK is excited to host this event at its premier facility at Heart Lake and to be partnering with the Forty Sixers, Barkeater Trail Alliance, and Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 5. Trail projects will take place in the High Peaks Wilderness and Wilmington Wild Forest.
ADK is offering free camping at its Wilderness Campground for all registered participants on both Friday and Saturday nights (ADK has reserved a set number of sites).
On Friday evening from 6-8 PM, there will be a social gathering for trail volunteers with snacks and beverages in front of the Adirondak Loj in our event tent. Information about Saturday’s trail projects will be available along with a chance to meet crew leaders and fellow volunteers.
At the end of the work day on Saturday, all trail volunteers are invited to the Adirondak Loj for a recognition dinner. The Adirondak Loj is located next to the picturesque Heart Lake and is surrounded by the High Peaks. Look forward to a delicious meal, live music and fun prizes.
