When you explore the wilderness, are you equipped with the essentials: non-cotton clothing, maps, water, first aid, headlamp, food, and emergency gear?
While we never deliberately court dangerous situations, the exploration of wilderness areas implies a certain level of personal risk, such as being injured in a remote area. Are you prepared to accept this risk?
We want to help all people fulfill their passion to explore, and everyone is at a different stage in their journey. How would you describe your outdoor experience? Are you a veteran or a newcomer? There is no wrong answer!

This group is for people who want to explore the wild corners of the Adirondacks, from the well-known trails to the places where few people go. We are active in all four seasons, from snowshoes to canoes. In our first six months we have enjoyed more than a dozen successful outings, from challenging day hikes to relaxing overnight camping trips. Our trips have attracted a variety of age and experience levels, but the one thing that everyone has in common is a passion for exploring the Adirondack wilderness.
It was started by an experienced hiker, paddler, and Adirondack guidebook writer as a way to engage with other people. We make an effort to keep group sizes manageable--smaller groups make smarter decisions--and the atmosphere casual. We are after all adults who just want to meet other people who share our love for the outdoors!
This is a community-funded group, meaning that voluntary donations are graciously accepted. Funds will be used to offset the costs associated with maintaining the site--helping to sustain the group and its program. As we grow as a community, there will be opportunities to tap new trip organizers and group leaders.
