Adirondacks

Section

Western border of the Adirondack Park to the New York/Vermont state line.

The North Country Trail here passes through the famed, 6-million acre Adirondack Park. The Trail crosses eight units through the park, each classified as Wild Forest or Wilderness, as well as several easement lands. As the Trail crosses approximately 158 miles of the Central Adirondacks, it offers mountains, spectacular vistas, and remote areas of dense forests rich with many lakes, bogs and cascading streams. Road connectors fill the gaps where trail sections are yet to be built.
