Work towards your own “46er” title by joining a group of peers on weeklong backpacking trips in the High Peaks Wilderness of Adirondack Park. Each week, you will explore a new circuit of Adirondack peaks, ridgelines, and lakes. Along the way, you will camp in tents at established campsites in the backcountry and will learn essential skills in backcountry camping, leave-no-trace, and food preparation. Join us for one, two, or all three weeks.
