Hello chapter members and community members,
Great news! As of June 6, 2022, all ADK Chapter hikes are open to the public. We encourage anyone interested in joining our club to join us on a hike or two and see what we are all about. We hope to see you on the trails!
The chapter has also decided to offer car pooling options once again to our weekly hikes. Look for details in the weekly email from the trip leader if you wish to participate in car pooling.
Remember to adhere to best practices regarding Leave No Trace Behind. Here is a website link provided to us by MaryAnne Johnson’s Girl Scout troop, https://www.aaastateofplay.com/leave-no-trace-principles-for-parks-playgrounds-and-beyond/
