Inside the border of New York State's Adirondack Park, there is a sweep of forest, mountains, rivers and lakes designated in the state constitution as Forever Wild. I guide a slate of year-round activities in the region.

Trout season is over but steelhead season on the Salmon River runs through the winter. Also, snow season is approaching. As soon as there is a solid base on the ground cross country ski and snowshoe trips will begin!

Make sure to pick up some Red Tail gift certificates for the outdoor enthusiast on your holiday list. They're good for fly fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking trips.

Sign up today for a memorable journey. You can keep up with the latest backcountry trip reports on the Facebook page.
