This trip demands a high level of physical fitness in order to complete it within the available daylight hours. ADK reserves the right to deny participation if group safety will be compromised through an individual's participation.
This program is a guided day hike to Dix Mountain & Hough Peak (elevations 4,857’ and 4,400’, 13.7 miles round-trip with approximately 3,300’ of elevation gain). Please plan on meeting in North Hudson, NY at 7:30am. After caravanning to the Elk Lake trailhead, we’ll go through group introductions, a trip overview, and embark on our journey to these “trailless” summits. Along the way we’ll discuss safe off-trail travel and enjoy the rich natural history of the Adirondacks. The trip will be led by ADK’s Education Department staff.
Prior hiking experience is highly recommended. Good physical condition, proper clothing, and proper equipment are a must.
