We are in the heart of New York State's Adirondacks High Peaks Region, where the highest peaks, most beautiful mountain lakes, and spectacular waterfalls are found. This is a legendary, historic and truly beautiful area that harkens back to an early, more simple time. You will love the peacefulness that surrounds you in this sparsely settled place, and your visit will stay with you forever.
This trip is designed for energetic folks in good physical condition that can do 6 to 8 miles of hiking in challenging terrain under diverse conditions. On most hikes you will see few other people. We will be hiking on well established trails for the most part - no rock climbing, except to take a dunk in a swimming hole to cool off. We stay at a cozy and quiet inn between Keene Valley and Lake Placid in the heart of the High Peaks Region. Our dinners are at great area restaurants.
