Hire a guide

The 6-million acre Adirondacks boasts over 3,000 lakes along with 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, millions of acres of hunting lands, and over 2,000 miles of hiking trails! So, where do we begin? 

One of the best ways to ensure an enjoyable outdoor experience is to hire a licensed Adirondack guide. Licensed outdoor guides have an intimate knowledge of the hiking trails and backcountry terrain. They can teach you to identify flora and fauna and show you where the best birdwatching is. From paddling and boating, climbing and hiking, to fishing and hunting, a guide service will have you navigating the Adirondacks like an expert.
