Peaks and Ponds Adirondack Day Hikes
A brand-new collection of thirty-seven classic and lesser-known trips throughout the Adirondack Park. The newest addition to the Adirondack Mountain Club’s authoritative collection of hiking guidebooks is a thoroughly researched, collaborative work by two ADK staff members, Bobby Clark and Cat Hadlow, both seasoned outdoor adventurers. The 160-page, full-color volume includes GPS coordinates and QR codes for trailheads and parking areas. It also features page map sketches by illustrator Terry Brosseau; scores of photographs by regional photographers; information about wilderness safety and ethics; round-trip distances; and difficulty ratings. The book honors ADK’s 100-year history of providing information to outdoor adventurers. It interweaves snippets of ADK history, as it leads hikers to beautiful remote spots throughout the park—places such as Moss Lake, Catamount Mountain, Tirrell Pond, and Kipp Mountain.
