Adirondack Trails - Hiking In the Adirondacks

Adirondack Trails by Challenges

One thing I love about the Adirondacks is the amount of challenges their are to get people outdoors and hiking. From the 46 High Peaks to the Fire Tower Challenge, these challenges cross the entire Adirondack Park. For me, it’s on my bucket list to complete the 46 High Peaks as that is a goal my father and I originally set out on when we started hiking. Browse the list below to see many of the challenges and what you have to do to complete them. This section is a work in progress, I will be adding the 46 High Peaks and Saranac Lake 6er soon. If you know of any other challenges, please contact me with their details.


Adirondack Trails

Adirondack Trails consists of thousands of miles of hiking trails over the 6 million acre Adirondack Park. From mountains, ponds, lakes, to waterfalls, fire towers and rivers. If you are looking for hiking, the Adirondacks is the place to be.

The Adirondack Mountain Club has broken up the Adirondacks trails into seven regions; High Peaks, Northern, Central, West-Central, Eastern and Southern. There is also many challenges that different agencies throughout the Adirondacks have put together.

Editors Note: The information about each of the Adirondack trails is collected by myself either through; online research, word of mouth, social media or personal experience. Unfortunately there could be the possibility that some of it is inaccurate. Either by something changing or error on my part. I always encourage hikers to do extra research by reaching out to; the Adirondack Mountain Club, social media, NYSDEC and/or online searches. I certainly do my best to keep things up to date and accurate as possible. If you have updated information that you would like to share, please  contact me.
