I believe a name change will be advantageous and inviting to a wider spectrum of activities, such as paddling, biking, etc. Adirondack High Peak hiking will still be one focus, however, other members have expressed interests in listing kayak / canoe trips, bocce ball, pick up softball, and more.
Please submit your ideas for all to see. You can also request to be an event host and post activities to the calendar. The more people posting to the calender the merrier.
Also, you can submit ideas about the new group name. Does it appropriately represent you or would another name be more fitting.
Champlain Valley Outdoor Enthusiasts (formerly Adirondack High Peaks Region Hiking Club)

A wide variety of activities are encouraged. A sample list of ideas:
