Three Winter Peaks in One  Sucess!

Dan and I started from the LOJ at 7:00 a.m. It was 5 degrees and we had no hopes of it getting any warmer. We bagged Skylight first and went on to route find the well hidden path of Gray. We just about turned around but finally found the top. Went on to the summit of Marcy and moved off just in time for it to sock in. Fun hard day. Thank you Dan for helping me with the Adirondack 46! Hiked in again with Vikram on November 18, 2009.

Hiking up a creek (otherwise known as Van Hoevenberg Trail)  Sucess!

Almost the entire Van Hoevenberg trail up this mountain is covered in streaming water, puddles or mud, not to mention a few brook crossings (during spring anyway)... makes for a nice and messy adventure!

Under estimated day hike  Sucess!

Brought my friends out to the Upper Works trail head and we decided to tackle this trek starting around 2pm.(very late) Little food and limited water, it turned out to be a great challenge. Half of the group turned back 2 miles in and the rest of us hiked ~11 miles (one way) and made it to the top by sunset(which was beautiful) My puggle Gizmo also came up with us. The night hike back down was even more fun and we didn't make it back the the cars until just about sunrise. Excellent memorable time!

Failed Attempt

80+ mph winds, and no crampons or axe, such a sad thing it is to turn around especially from so close. Still got to enjoy INCREDIBLE views though, will be back again!

Marcy  Sucess!

Spent 4 days in adks with my son. It was a killer time. going in 2011 to do it all over. The trip up marcy was very demanding hard on the 44 year old feet but very much worth it. Ran out of water 1/2 way down. That will not happen again. So much to see loved every sec........

Birthday Hike  Sucess!

We took full climbing gear which made for 70+ lb. packs over the top and in to Avalanche Pass. Brought to ex-military friend and they both said the hike was tougher than advanced training. Lots of bears too!

Did not summit, we had an issue just a 1/4 mile from the top (just past where you come out of the trees). Lots of snow, and wind, but otherwise a nice day and a fun climb.

from the AKD Loj  Sucess!

the weather was nice the whole way up, but the trail was muddy in spots (typical of the Aidirondacks). Beautiful views from the top. I'm glad I made it up early since there were throngs of people coming up when I headed down.

A rough one  Sucess!

Hiked this one with my wife, who's a bit slow. Took us 11.5 hours to do the 15 mile Van Hoevenberg Trail, with about 7 hours of cold and rain. Still, a great day, despite no views at the top.

Van Hoevenberg Trail  Sucess!

Parked on South Meadow and started up around 6am. Reached the summit around 9am and spent half an hour alone up there until the summit ranger arrived. Weather was beautiful. On the way back down I made side trips up Table Top and Phelps. Amazing views from Phelps but was much too crowded for my taste. Reached my car around 3pm and headed on down to the Catskills for some hiking the next day.

From Slant Rock  Sucess!

Did it as part of a solo trip. Climb itself was not too bad, but given the time of year, there was steady rain and limited visibility at summit. Loved the lean to, hated having to post hole the entire trail from it.

Longest Solo.  Sucess!

Followed the Van Hoevenberg Trail up & down. Stayed at the Adirondack Loj for the convienence of an early start, nearness to the trailhead and the ammenities of a bed and cooked meals.
