LAKE PLACID TRAIL NEW YORK BACKPACKERS
Northville-Lake Placid Thru Hikers
Special Note: Northville-Lake Placid Trail Thru-Hikers
We at Adirondack Wilderness Adventures would like to extend our sincere wishes in your endeavor. Been there done that October 4th, 2002. We know the 19 degree days, sleet, rain (everyday of course), blisters (with a package a mole skin a day), and swollen knees and feet. Would we be stupid enough to do it again. The answer YES. Now back in reality and the wounds have healed: BUT - - wake to West Lake with a crisp frost during fall foliage, hear the loons on Silver Lake, see the cliffs at Tirrell Pond were well worth the ADK trip. Even etched further the dreaded road walking, the bog walking North, the broken water filter, and washing when its 19 degrees. The reason I tell you this is, we at Adirondack Wilderness Adventures RELATE.
We would like to extend to you Northville-Lake Placid Thru-Hikers:
A SMALL BUNK HOSTEL THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE (SOUTH TO NORTH);
A SMALL BUNK HOSTEL UPON COMPLETION (NORTH TO SOUTH);
and SHUTTLE TO AND FROM THE TRAIL HEAD (SOUTHERN END). You are also welcome to park your vehicle at Back To Basics instead of the trailhead.
The Hostel accommodations are approximately 10 minutes from the trail head in Benson.
If there are additional requests you require for your trip, please feel free to ask, we will do our best to accommodate you.
THIS PACKAGE OFFERED ONLY TO THE NORTHVILLE-LAKE PLACID THRU-HIKERS FREE OF CHARGE.
