Adirondacks: Algonquin and Iroquois
Want a Memorial Day weekend to remember? Come on a mountain adventure to the Adirondacks with us! And climb not one but two 46ers! 46ers are 46 high peaks of the Adirondacks, each over 4,000 feet tall. We’ll ring in the unofficial start of summer with mountain climbing, games, and great company!
Get away from Memorial Day City crowds and join us on this beautiful adventure! Our journey will take us on a gorgeous hike of Algonquin Peak and, conditions permitting, an ascent of the nearby Iroquois, a trailless peak. For the first half of the day, it’s a steady climb, and it will feel anywhere between INTERMEDIATE and CHALLENGING, depending on your experience and conditions. But we plan to keep the pace very moderate, to allow for an enjoyable day. If you can do a Catskill 3500 mountain, you can do these peaks! The summits of these peaks are above treeline, so the views at the top are absolutely fantastic! On a clear day, we will be able to see countless mountains in the High Peaks region.
When not hiking, we’ll spend our nights at the Adirondack Loj, relaxing and enjoying board games and great conversation.
Experience: Prior high peak (Catskill 3500’s or Adirondack 46ers) hiking experience strongly encouraged. Please contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can help you put together a training plan! This trip is rated INTERMEDIATE due to easier pace, but it may feel more challenging depending on conditions and experience. This trip has CHALLENGING terrain and (sometimes) conditions.
Accommodations: Shared (with our group) loft room at ADK Loj. Limited private rooms available for an extra $150 per night. Please email us at email@example.com with questions and requests.
Food: We will have lunch on the road the first day and the last day. Other than that, all meals are included.
Day 1 (May 25th)
We’ll depart at 7:00 am, stopping for lunch on the road. After arriving at the Loj we’ll go for a short warm-up hike. After a moderate scramble to the top, gorgeous views of the Adirondacks will open up right in front of us. That evening we’ll enjoy a tasty dinner and and get ready for our climb.
Day 2 (May 26th)
After a hearty breakfast, we’ll start the summit attempt of Algonquin and Iroquois. We’ll take our time on the trail and make consistent, steady progress, admiring the ridge and summit views. That night, we’ll relax in front of the fire after a delicious dinner.
Day 3 (May 27th)
After a good night’s rest, we’ll pack and relax for the leisurely drive back to New York City, stopping for lunch along the way. For those interested, we’ll do a short morning hike to ring in the new year!
