Northville-Placid Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Built in 1922 by the Adirondack Mountain Club, this 133-mile- long isolated wilderness route journeys through the rugged splendor of the Adirondacks between Northville and Lake Placid. It takes an average of two to three weeks to hike. The southern two- thirds rolls to obtain a top elevation of 3,008 feet at Central Plateau, south of Long Lake, the largest water body on the trail.
The northern portion twists through valleys parting trailless high peaks to end at Averyville Road near Lake Placid. The trail’s pristine wilds, solitude, picturesque waters, fall foliage, and spur trails to ponds and peaks continually reward."
