Description

The Great Range Traverse is famous for being one of the most challenging hikes in USA. This 21-mile epic and legendary trail passes over ten of the highest peaks of the Adirondack Mountains.

Our objective is that you can complete this trek as part of the three epic traverses of the country (together with The Devil’s Path and The Presidential Traverse). That way you will also become a legend yourself!

For that reason we’ve prepared an itinerary that begins early in the morning in New York towards our mountain destination. Upon arrival we’ll make a short hike to our cabin base camp. During this weekend our home will be the Camp Peggy O’Brien, a cozy and lovely backcountry hut surrounded by a fantastic scenery where we’ll set up camp. We will go to bed after a hearty dinner to get ready for the next day.

On day 2 we will wake up before sunrise and begin our great traverse from the camp. We will have the opportunity to appreciate the bests views that the New York State has for you while passing over seven peaks of more that 1200 meters in height.

This day we’ll do our best to help you fulfill the most important goal of the traverse in the Great Range: Mount Marcy. It’s the highest peak in the New York State with 1628 meters of altitude. Therefore, you’ll have a food and water resupply point halfway to the final destination. As your safety is our top priority, there will be also multiple exit points along the trail. Finally, in our descent we’ll be hiking below the treeline, getting to our camping site after 15 miles. A great night rest is guaranteed after a exquisite dinner and campfire stories.

On our last day we’ll drive back to New York City to enjoy and brag about such exciting achievements that we have made in this legendary hiking expedition.

So contact us if you want to be part of the Great Range traverse. We’ll get everything ready for the adventure!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
