New initiative to reduce the number of search and rescue incidents

Local

Search and rescues are on the rise in the Adirondack Mountains.

To tackle the rising number of incidents the DEC, Adirondack Mountain Club, and  the Adirondack 46ers’ have announced an initiative that will increase engagement between hikers and trailheads.  

As a part of the program hikers can expect to see forest rangers and volunteers at the ADK’s High Peaks Information Center, and on popular trails.

This initiative will begin Presidents’ Day holiday weekend.
