Backpacking Trips in the Adirondacks
Pharaoh Lake Wilderness Backpack Trips
August 1-3, 2017
Oct 6-8, 2017 - WOMEN'S TRIP
This 3-day trip is quite scenic with optional opportunities to explore an area that once supported sawmills,
graphite mines and tanneries after the Revolutionary War. Glaciers carved out this area leaving sharp cliff faces
and valleys filled with beautiful glacial ponds, marshes and sandy soils. Forest fires have also left their effect
on the area. The terrain for this trip will be easy to moderate with optional side trips as time and weather allows.
One option includes an easy to moderate 5-mile RT hike to the summit of Treadway Mt., considered the most entrancing
of any peak in the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness by guide book writer, Barbara McMartin. This is a beautiful area to spend a
few days (one of those that you wish others didn't know about). The pace will be leisurely allowing time to enjoy
whatever we find along the way. The backpack distances vary between 4-7 miles daily. This trip is intended for hikers
capable of carrying approx. a 30 lbs. pack weight. Lightweight backpacks, personal cook systems, camping gear (excluding
sleeping bag) and trail meals are provided. We plan to meet at our home base location near Tupper Lake at 7 AM on Day 1.
We expect to depart for the 1:30 drive to the trailhead as soon after packing as possible. Space is limited to 4 people.
