Forever Wild Adirondacks
Why the Adirondacks?
Because its nature evokes a feeling of coming home.
Coming home to nature that hasn’t changed since Colonial America.
Coming back to a childhood innocence, of exploration and discovery.
Adirondack Park comprises more than 6 million acres, larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Grand Canyon, and the Great Smoky parks combined! There are thousands of lakes and ponds, and miles of rivers and streams, with plentiful canoeing, kayaking and amazing hiking, thanks to the 46 mountains that make up the Adirondack High Peaks with more than 1,800 miles of marked trails.This is the largest park in the continental US!
And it is close to home for those in the Northeastern US, north of Albany, just three hours drive from New York City.
