Intro to Backpacking and the Northville Placid Trail

May 13-14th, 2023


Are you considering backpacking the NPT?


Do you want to hone your backcountry skills to prepare for a multi-day backpacking trip?


Would you like to “talk trail” and share tidbits from the NPT?

This is an overnight backpacking trip for the purpose of introducing the NPT and backpacking to those who want to learn more. We will hike approximately 4 miles along the NPT to a campsite with a lean-to. Participants will experience a small part of the NPT and have the opportunity to learn more about hiking the NPT and backpacking in the Adirondacks.


No backpacking experience necessary, but participants need to be able to hike the full distance with a pack and source most of their own gear. Some items may be able to be borrowed. The trip leader will send out a questionnaire and call each prospective participant to ensure preparedness and to plan specifics.


Contact Trip Leader Russ at rbyer@hotmail.com by April 15th.



This is an Adirondack Mountain Club event and follows ADK Covid protocols including being able to provide proof of vaccination.
