Week hike in Adirondacks

Postby Basham » Fri Sep 16, 2016 3:55 pm

I'm thinking of doing this in late March/early April. Anybody willing to do this with me?

Where ya going in the Adirondacks? Marcy? Late March will still be close to full winter conditions although with a bit more daylight.

In an average snow year, the Adirondack high peaks are not snow free until close to Memorial Day weekend. A couple of years ago, we got 2 ft+ of new snow at highest elevations on Memorial Day weekend!

I know. I love extreme weather. Went for a hike during an all-out blizzard once.

Go earlier in May before the black flies come out. Stay lower and out of the high peaks to avoid the remaining snow. The Northville-Lake Placid trail would be a decent option but be prepared to skirt winter blowdown (likely would not yet be cleared) and wade some high streams due to runoff.
