Living in New York State you might spend an afternoon or ten walking many of the awesome trails that you know about. When that gets more challenging you start to look for new trails, or new experiences. Have you heard of the Appalachian Trail and how to get on the famed, historic trail in the Hudson Valley. While working on a trail that extends from Georgia to Maine, how about something a little closer to home?

There is a, just under 5-mile trek, known as the Algonquin Trail, that is a bit easier to do in one day. Where can you get on the Algonquin Trail?

Where can you get on the Algonquin Trail? Is it hard?


Saying whether or not the Algonquin Trail is tough depends greatly on your skill level. The Algonquin Peak is the second highest peak in New York State, and just one of 46 peaks that are in the Adirondack Park.

Is there a spot to join the Algonquin Trail? Probably one of the best places to get on the trail (and having decent parking)  Adirondack Loj and Heart Lake Program Center,, 1002 Adirondack Loj Rd, Lake Placid, NY 12946. The decent parking I mentioned? Expect to pay in the range of $15 to $20. The hike (as I have been told) is not an easy one, even trained hikers who are 'ready for it' might not be ready. Remember to pace yourself, dress for the weather and hydrate. Allow for the entire day to have an amazing experience.
