Coming Events

Sat, Nov 1: Trip Leadership Clinic (Read the news article) If you’ve considered the possibility of leading outings in the ADK, here is a chance to practice leading a model hike and learn ways to handle some of the situations that can arise. This will be an all-day event at Higley Flow State Park. We will use our imaginations to conjure up all the types of outings that occur in the chapter. Everyone welcome, including prospective leaders, those with general interest, and experienced leaders with anecdotes about their own experiences. Members only. Level 1, easy. Contact John Barron at 613-828-2296 or or Marianne Hebert at 315-265-0756 or

Wed, Nov 5: Jenkins Mountain Bushwhack/Hike Six miles RT, 900 ft elevation gain. We’ll approach the mountain from the south, bushwhacking on eskers, then join the trail for the last half. Retrace our steps to return. Should the weather dictate, we’ll skip the climb and circle the ponds. Moderate difficulty. Be prepared for some ice. 8 AM rendezvous. Members only. Level 3, moderate. Contact John and Susan Omohundro at 315-265-8365 or

Wed, Nov 12: Wednesday Walk in the Woods(WWW) Meet at 9:00 AM by the Village of Potsdam water tower on the Clarkson hill campus (accessed from US 11 near the RR overpass) for a leisurely walk in the Clarkson woods, including a stop at the beaver marsh viewing tower. Level 1, easy at 2 miles max, with no climbing, but may be slippery footing on the wetland side trail. WWW is also offered November 12. It’s OK to come unannounced, but unless you contact me, you won’t know if there has been a last-minute cancelation. Level 1, easy. Contact Dick Mooers at 315-854-4186 or

Sun, Nov 16: Fall Potluck Dinner with speaker Mark McMurray The SLU Head of Special Collections will speak on the topic of Adirondack fiction. Presbyterian church, Canton. 5-9 PM.
