Description

5 hours from NYC

Nearby: Lake Placid, Blake Peak, Mount Redfield, Tabletop Mountain, Ausable River

The 6-million acre High Peaks region in the Adirondacks is among the most majestic areas in the east, with 46 major mountain peaks and countless hiking trails for true outdoor addicts. We'll be setting up camp somewhere along the trail at a location TBD, so make sure to pack light as you'll be hiking in and out all your gear. This is bear country, so we'll be practicing safe storage of food and keeping our mess to an absolute minimum. For those who want a true trail hiking and camping experience, this is the trip for you.

As with the Peekamoose trip, this is a backcountry camping adventure, and we'll be packing light for the hike in to find a campsite. Ideally we'll be traveling together, but it's possible for other groups to find us on site once we are situated.

This is location does not offer running water or facilities. It's primitive camping in undeveloped nature all the way... carry in, carry out. We'll be packing dehydrated foods and filtering water from a source nearby. If you have a question feel free to contact me at justin@wearebkc.com
