Adirondack High Peaks

The Schenectady Chapter's outings represent an excellent resource for those interested in hiking the High Peaks. We offer outings to the High Peaks year-round and, although preference is given to Schenectady Chapter and other ADK members, outings are open to everyone with the physical ability and proper equipment. If you have any questions about participation contact the outing's leader and they will be happy to discuss them with you.

If you want to make some new friends joining an outing is a great opportunity to meet people with similar interests. If you want to improve your ability to navigate, snowshoe, bushwack, or find the summit of that trail-less peak spending time with one of our experienced leaders can be eye opening. Even if you just want to save money by carpooling, come join us!

A list of upcoming outings is available in the latest issue of our newsletter The Lookout.

1 Elevation listed is from the trail guide High Peaks Trails, 14th Edition published by the ADK, which may differ from the elevation listed by the USGS. Both ADK and USGS elevations may differ from the actual elevation of the summit.

2 Peaks listed with a "Tr" have a marked trail, which provides access to the summit. No marked trail exists for peaks listed with a "HP", access the summit is only available via an unmarked herd path.

3 Coordinates listed are those from the USGS Geographic Names Information System though if they prove to be inaccurate or imprecise other values may be substituted. The present exception to this is Giant Mt., which appears not to have an entry in the USGS system. The coordinate system used is NAD83.  Knowledgeable feedback on the accuracy of this information is encouraged though hopefully these values should provide a good starting point for GPS users.
