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.

Additional opportunities can be found on the ADK All-Club Outing Calendar
listing all outings from all chapters. If our chapter isn’t going there soon,
another chapter may be.

Sat, Dec 21: Solstice Ski to Clear Pond Ski into Clear Pond in the White Hill Wild Forest in Parishville. It is 1.9 mi. from the paved road (where we park) to the pond, following a snowmobile trail. The trail continues along the north side of the pond. Depending on how far we can go, the round-trip will be 4 to 5 miles. This is a moderately strenuous trip. It will be weather dependent for skiing. We will hike if there is no snow. Contact David Trithart,
