Winter programs open up outdoor opportunities



The winter schedule began Jan. 5, with a guided hike to the summit of Esther Mountain, a 4,240-foot trailless peak; there are two more chances to climb that peak, with hikes up Street and Nye, Tabletop and Phelps planned, as well. Prior hiking experience is needed for those strenuous full-day snowshoe outings, and participants should be in good shape for those treks. Cost is $55 for members and $60 for nonmembers.

Most Adirondack Mountain Club guided trips and workshops are held at its Heart Lake Center on Adirondack Loj Road near Lake Placid or in the adjacent High Peaks Wilderness. The Feb. 2 GPS 101 class will be held at the club’s Member Services Center in Lake George. 

For more information, visit or call 523-3441.

The Adirondack Mountain Club, founded in 1922, is a nonprofit, membership organization that protects the Forest Preserve, state parks and other wild lands and waters through conservation and advocacy, environmental education, responsible recreation and stewardship.
