Esther Mountain Summer
Thank you for your interest in an Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) guided hike.
Health insurance is required to participate in this program.
This program is a guided day hike to Esther Mountain (elevation 4,240’, 6.6 miles round-trip with approximately 2,600’ of elevation gain). Please plan on arriving at the parking lot outside the Ausable River Two Fly Shop at 8:30am, located at 5698 NY-86, Wilmington, NY 12997. From there we’ll caravan to the trailhead located at the Atmospheric Science Research Center. After introductions and a trip overview, we’ll embark on our journey to this “trailless” summit. Along the way we’ll discuss safe off-trail travel and enjoy the rich natural history of the Adirondacks. The trip will be led by ADK’s Education Department staff.
Prior hiking experience is highly recommended. Good physical condition, proper clothing, and proper equipment are a must.
ADK members receive a 10% discount on programs and lodging. To reserve lodging at the Adirondak Loj, please call the Adirondack Mountain Club at (518) 523-3441 or book online.
