If you have ever traveled along Route 73 near Lake Placid or any of the other roads that access the Adirondack High Peaks, you know that there are hundreds of cars parked along the roadside. To alleviate the parking and hiking gridlock, a reservation system is in place.
In an effort to alleviate parking problems and hiking crowds, the Adirondack Mountain Reserve in Keene is continuing with its reservation system. They started it last year and decided to keep it going.
Want to start the new year on the right foot or the left then right then left then right? It's the Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) annual First Day Hikes through the Adirondacks. There are six hikes and are both guided and non-guided hikes in the Central and Eastern Adirondacks. They are all set to be held on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
