In this February episode I'm throwing it back to warmer days; a Summer-time hike where the gang and I set out to bushwhack up the 45th tallest mountain in the state, Green Mountain. Though not an official "High Peak" Green is taller than multiple High Peaks and is a mountain without a trail therefore requiring bushwhacking and off trail navigational skills through its thick evergreen woods to the summit of this mysterio...

In our conversation Todd addresses many misconceptions ...

In this week's episode I speak with Paul from the Aptitude Outdoors Podcast while he was here in the ADK experiencing his first Adirondacks adventure (and in the winter no less). Paul is an podcaster and outdoors fanatic from Ohio who promotes exploring wherever you live, even if it's not a typical outdoors hub, because there's always adventure to be had when you seek it out. Check out Paul's show, Aptitude Outdoors...

In this episode I'll tackle what many call "the unofficial 47th high peak of the Adirondacks", the mighty McNaughton Mountain to kick off the official winter hiking season on the winter solstice. I'll join some new friends as we tackle this rugged, trailess mountain as we bushwhack our way to the summit. It was a wet start to the winter season, that's for sure.

In this New Year's Eve special I go back through each episode from 2020 and give you a little behind-the-scenes look and tell more stories about the hikes, the episodes, the guests, the stories, and everything else involved with the po...

“The Night Before Christmas in the Adirondack Mountains”
Written by Kinnon Appleton
Adapted from Clement C. Moore’s poem, “The Night Before Christmas”

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the Park
There was snow softly falling, it was quiet and dark.

The backpacks were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas would bring some new gear.

The hikers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of summit vie...

Hitting the trail with our K9 companions can be a joyous activity and it's important that we make sure our pups are prepared, fed, and safe out there when we do it. This week I talk to Wendy and Bobbi from the High Peaks Animal Hospital to hear all about the right ways to safely and successfully venture into the outdoors with our dogs.

Before you head into the outdoors with your dogs it's important to always know where the ...

Hiking all 46 High Peaks in the Adirondacks is a difficult task. Hiking all 46 High Peaks in two months is an even more difficult task. Hiking all 46 High Peaks in two months completely barefoot seems like an impossible task, right? For my guest this week, however, it was his reality. Check out the fascinating story of how Joseph Clauss hiked all 46 High Peaks completely barefoot during the summer of 2020, and learn all about this ...

In this edition of the Summit Sessions I'll speak with Bethany Garretson and Katie Rhodes, who are less than a week off the trail after completing the first ever officially documented female unsupported thru hike of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks, setting an official FKT at just over 7 days. A terrific story of fun, perseverance, friendship, and grit. You'll want to hear this story.

In the twilight, as the sun starts to dip behind the mountains, and its golden light kisses the surrounding summits, darkness engulfs the valleys below. The sounds of the forest awaken as the moon rises and a wailing can be heard for miles. A distinctive wailing that to some, may just sound like the wind in the trees…but it’s something more. Something sinister. But sometimes one wrong step down one wrong path is all it takes to fi...

In this Columbus Day Weekend Summit Session special I had the honor of speaking with Monika and David from the Leave No Trace organization all about the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace, LNT consulting in the Adirondack Park, and even went on a "virtual" hike up Mt Marcy to put those 7 principles to practice out on the trail.

This was a fun episode filled with information on how to responsibly and respectfully venture into t...

Allison also started hiking in the Adirondack high peaks when she was just five years old and became an ADK 46'er a mere two weeks after her 13'th birthday; so she brings a unique perspective and experien...

The Soda Range. This 6-mile loop ridge trail definitely qualifies as a "less traveled trail" in the Adirondack Park and what was supposed to be a quick, simple, afternoon hike on a trail I'd yet to experience, turned into the single most painful and hardest day I've ever experienced in the woods. Regardless of my situation out there however, it really is a great little trail.

Drink coffee? Of course you do. Check out...
