Program areas at ADK

Trailsadk's three trails programs: supervised volunteers, backcountry stewardship, and the professional trails program advocate for the stewardship, protection, and responsible use of new york state's wild lands and waterways. The supervised volunteer trails program works closely with the dec since 1986 to maintain hiking trails and backcountry facilities throughout the Adirondack and catskill parks. This year backcountry stewardship programs such as the lean-to adopter program allowed a group of almost 260 volunteers to maintain their lean-to in the adirondacks, including the general cleanliness, maintaining a guest log book and submitting yearly reports to the dec. The adk professional trails program (pro crew) focuses (see schedule o) on resource protection through quality trail work, layout, and design. The pro crew maintains, builds, and reconstructs trails throughout new york state with a focus on the Adirondack and catskill forest preserves. Adk has three complimentary trails programs: supervised volunteers, backcountry stewardship, and the professional trails program. Volunteers maintained lean-tos, cleared drainage and removed blowdown from miles of trails. Our pro crews built rock turnpicking, dimensional span bridges, dimensional ladders, bog bridging, rock stairs, and new trails. Volunteer trail crews constructed bog bridging, step stones, re-decked a suspension bridge, and cleared miles of trails. These programs advocate for the stewardship, protection, and responsible use of new york state's wild lands and waterways. The supervised volunteer trails program has worked closely with the dec since 1986 to help maintain hiking trails and backcountry facilities throughout the Adirondack and catskill parks. Other opportunities include skill workshops such as basic trail maintenance, special events like national trails day and fall trails day, high school programs, and johns brook valley trail work weekend. Backcountry stewardship programs such as the lean-to adopter program allow a group of volunteers to maintain "their" lean-to and adopted section of trail, including the general cleanliness of the structure and adjacent pit privy, maintaining a guest log book, and submitting yearly reports to the dec. The adk professional trails program (pro crew) is based on resource protection through quality trail work, trail layout, and design. Initially, the focus was on the damaged trails of the high peaks region of the Adirondack park. Now with a much broader scope, the pro crew maintains, builds, and reconstructs trails throughout new york state with a focus on the Adirondack and catskill forest preserves.
