Overnight Beginners Backpack Experience - Cascade Pond
July 19 & 20, 2017 - FULL
Aug 3 & 4, 2017

Here's an opportunity to spend a night camping on an attractive Adirondack pond in the Blue Mt. Lake area. Barbara McMartin wrote "Cascade Pond is arguably the most scenic destination in the eastern Blue Ridge Wilderness." Planned as an end to end 1-night trip, this is perfect for anyone new to backpacking or anyone who just wants a break from the busyness of life. The pace will be leisurely with rests stops as needed. The total backpack distance will be a little over 6 miles over the two days. McMartin considers this a relatively easy backpack trip with a few ups and downs. Part of this route follows an old carriage road that was built in 1849. There is a lean-to near the pond and a cascade at the pond's outlet. High quality, light weight camping gear (excluding sleeping bag) and our standard camping meals choices provided for this trip for no additional charge. Guests are welcomed to bring their own gear & meals if they prefer. We plan to meet at our home base location near Tupper Lake at 8:00 AM on Day 1. We'll provide instruction while packing and throughout the trip. After packing we'll head off to the trailhead in Blue Mt. Lake (40 minute drive). The hike to Cascade Pond is approximately 3 miles. Upon arrival, we will set up our campsite for the night then enjoy the remainder of our time on this beautiful pond. After a leisurely breakfast on Day 2, we will break camp and continue our hike to Lake Durant. There is the option of a 1.2 mile round-trip hike to Stephens Pond on the way. This would be a walk without our backpacks. Expect to depart for home mid-afternoon. Space is limited to 4 people. Minimum of 2 people necessary to confirm this trip so bring a friend! Cost: $300/person. Click here to reserve a space for this trip.


Women's Backpack Trip for Beginners - Raquette Falls
May 7-9, 2018

This 3-day trip is good for beginners and those who just want to get away where it's quiet for a bit. The trip is planned as a moderate, leisurely paced hike to the Raquette Falls area with plenty of time to stop & smell the roses... okay, maybe violets and trout lilies. No mountains to climb on this trip, just a hill or two to walk up as we get nearer the falls. This trail is generally dry and with the spring water levels, this is a good time to visit the falls. A variety of spring flowers should line the trail. High quality, light weight camping gear (excluding sleeping bag) and our standard camping meals choices provided at no additional charge. Guests are welcomed to bring their own gear & meals if they prefer. We plan to meet at our home base location near Tupper Lake at 8:00 AM on Day 1. After packing we'll head off to the trailhead in Coreys (15-20 minute drive). We'll hike in approximately 4 miles with hopes of camping on a beautiful hemlock bank overlooking the Raquette River. We will set up camp for 2 nights. Day 2 we will hike to Raquette Falls exploring the area along the river between the Upper & Lower Falls. Then we'll head off to Dawson Pond, a little gem in itself. Day 3 we will enjoy breakfast and the quietness of the river before packing up to pack out to our vehicles. Expect to depart from our location mid-afternoon on Day 3. Space is limited to 6 people. Minimum of 2 people necessary to confirm this trip so bring a friend! Cost: $420/person. Click here to reserve a space for this trip.

Women's Backpack Trip - Pharaoh Lake Wilderness
Oct 6-9, 2017

Female camaraderie on the trail for a few days of backpacking in the eastern Adirondacks during the fall foliage and NO BUG season. This 4-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 moderate with optional side trips as time allows. We anticipate that the foliage could be near peak at this time. 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 the wonderful views along the way. The daily backpack distances will be between 6-10 miles. This trip is intended for stronger hikers capable of carrying 30-35 lbs. for many miles. High quality, light weight camping gear (excluding sleeping bag) and our standard camping meals choices provided at no additional charge. Guests are welcomed to bring their own gear & meals if they prefer. 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 Pharaoh Lake trailhead as soon after packing as possible. Space is limited to 4 women. Minimum of 2 people necessary to confirm this trip so bring a friend! Please make reservations well in advance. Thank you. Cost: $520/person. Click here to reserve a space for this trip.
