Sat, January 06, 2024

10:00 AM – 4:30 PM EST


Heart Lake Program Center



AARCH and the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) are collaborating on a special program that highlights the history of ADK’s renowned Heart Lake complex in Lake Placid. The day will start at ADK’s historic Adirondack Loj, designed by Adirondack architect William Distin, with the earliest section built in 1927. ADK staff will share the history of the Heart Lake complex and the former and current Loj buildings. A tour of the Loj and the complex immediately surrounding it will follow the presentation. The group will gather for lunch, included in your registration, and will then snowshoe to Marcy Dam and back. This will be a 4.6-mile roundtrip hike with an elevation gain of 350 feet and will take about 4 hours. The guided hike will cover the history of the trails, Marcy Dam itself, and other infrastructure at the dam and along the way. Lunch is included in the tour, but participants can also choose to stay for dinner and spend the night as part of a special discounted package price. Please contact the Loj directly to make dinner and overnight lodging reservations, 518-523-3441 ext. 1 or loj@adk.org. Register by 9:00 am on December 22. Refunds are only given if AARCH must cancel the event.
