An NPT100 Celebration - Halfway in Hamilton

Hooray for halfway! 

Put on your best hiking apparel and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Northville-Placid Trail at ADKX, located (roughly) near the halfway mark of the trail in Hamilton County. Start your day with a guided nature walk with Naturalist, Adirondack Guide, and Author Ed Kanze along a section of the NPT in the Blue Mountain Wilderness Area. Head over to the ADKX campus in the afternoon for a campfire, s’mores, and stories from the trail. Listen to a program by Julia Goren, Deputy Executive Director of the Adirondack Mountain Club at 2 PM, and take a tour of ADKX’s new temporary exhibit Trail Makers: 100 Years of the Northville-Placid Trail
