The public is invited on all trips unless otherwise indicated.

Please contact trip leaders before the trip

  • to check for last-minute changes, and
  • so the leaders can estimate how many people will be participating.

Please consider car-pooling and sharing the cost of gas.

Sat, Aug 19: Trip Leader Training Hike We’ll walk and talk at Lampson Falls for a couple of hours. Pick up some tips for selecting, describing, and leading a hike for ADK.

Sat, Aug 26: Climb St. Regis Mountain 7 miles round trip, 1300 feet vertical gain.

Sat, Sep 23: Paddling, South Creek (Middle Saranac Lake access) to Ampersand Bay (Lower Saranac Lake) This is a 9 mile version of the usual “14 Miler” run most Septembers by the chapter. Level 3, open water. Meet at South Creek parking area at 9 AM to spot cars, with launch at 10 AM. Bring lunch or snack, dining locally after the paddle. Participants must contact leader Dick Mooers, rmooers@twcny.rr.com, 315-854-4186.

Sat, Sep 30: Tooley Pond Bike and Hike We will explore the lovely Tooley Pond waterfalls with biking from falls to falls. The plan is to leave one car down by the bridge near Sinclair falls and then start the biking from Copper Rock Falls (after hiking in to see that falls). There should be roughly 8 miles of biking and 3-4 miles of walking. Biking will be mostly downhill, but not exclusively and walking will be relatively easy trails. We should hit at least 5 gorgeous waterfalls - big payoff for not a huge amount of effort. Level 2. Contact Jeanna Matthews (jeanna.matthews@gmail.com) or Marianne Hebert (hebertm@potsdam.edu)
