Free ADK guidebook supplement

The Adirondack Mountain Club has issued a supplement to its Adirondack Trails: Eastern Region guidebook that can be downloaded for free from its Web site.east-guide

The supplement describes twelve additional hiking trails in ten locations within the region, which includes Lake George and the Champlain Valley.

Perhaps the most exciting addition is the 2.6-mile trail connecting the scenic summits of Thomas and Cat mountains on the west side of Lake George. Both mountains belong to a preserve owned by the Lake George Land Conservancy.

Other additions include the new trail up Poke-o-Moonshine Mountain and trails at five Wildlife Management Areas, Noblewood Park in Willsboro, and the Crown Point State Historic Site. The supplement also describes 123-acre Schuyler Island, which lies about a half-mile off Lake Champlain’s western shore. It can be reached by a 1.5-mile paddle.

Both the Eastern Region guidebook and the supplement were written by David Thomas-Train.

Hard copies of the supplement may be purchased for $1 at ADK’s facilities in Lake George and at Heart Lake. The full guidebook sells for $19.95.
