Join us for a two-night fully guided backpack of Allen Mountain. This trip is scheduled for Tuesday July 16 – Thursday July 18, 2019. The midweek hiking should provide us with Adirondack solitude. The full moon will add an additional sense of wonder to the evenings. All meals and group gear will be provided by your enthusiastic and professional New York State licensed guide.
The entire hike to Allen Mountain and back is 19 miles with 4000 feet of elevation gain, but we’ll sandwich a moderate backpack around a day-hike of approximately 5 miles to the summit.
Allen Mountain has fantastic views as you climb and another fabulous viewpoint featuring the Great Range of the Adirondacks near the 4340 foot summit. The summit itself is wooded, but the great views are close by.
Although only 5 miles round-trip, the hike from our campsite to the Allen Mountain summit will be very strenuous. The route near the Allen Brook is steep, rugged and sometimes slippery. Therefore, the reward of a hot meal back at our campsite will be well earned. Once back at the camp, it will be R&R time under the full moon until we have to load our packs and leave the next morning.
The cost for the July 16 Allen Mountain Backpack trip is $400. There are spots remaining.
