Adirondacks the Great

Adirondacks the Great Professional Review and Guide

"Stupendous views from the Great Range, crystalline lakes
carved deep into granite gorges, raging torrents, demanding
scrambles, and precipitous descents: this trip has everything to tempt the expert backpacker.

It also has the virtue of serving as a comprehensive circumnavigation of the high peaks of the Adirondacks. Walk this route and you’ll likely return home dreaming of the mountains you didn’t climb. You’ll soon be scheming to return for more!"
