Are you an Adk46'er or working towards your goal? If the latter, how many peaks have you accomplished? x/46

No, I am not. However I have hiked many peaks a multitude of times, some upwards of 17 or more. I have 6 to go, 7 with MacNaughton, the 47th 46'r

Other than the 46'ers, do you have other hiking goals?

I had some health issues for a couple of years but now I'm back on track. Some of my goals include climbing some slides, hiking the Adirondack low peaks, giving map and compass & survival courses Work on the Adirondack Hundred Highest (completed about 60 pks) Whack Algonquin via the slide and visit the Airplane slides on Wright. I am an advocate for trails and trail maintenance. I am currently Supv for one clubs, plus I maintain the Saint Regis trail and three lean-to's.

Some members hike with their dogs. Would you mind joining a trip with well behaved and leashed dogs?

I share my space with two insane cats, that sometimes join me for a hike around the yard. I'll hike only with owners who won't let their dogs destroy the trail or run off chasing a hare.. Please call me if you're interested in hiking as I'm not always online: [masked] Best times, 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.


I live part time in the Adirondacks, from May to November, and spend a lot of time in the woods, on trails, off trail and trail maintenance. I like hiking and meeting others, while sharing knowledge and gorp.

What Elie is saying about this Meetup Group

We offer a variety of hikes, from easy ones with upwards of 500 ft elevation gain, to hard ones, including all the High Peaks and some bushwhacks as well!! We sometimes go out to lunch or dinner afterwards, too!!
