Mission Statement

The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) is dedicated to the conservation, preservation, and responsible recreational use of the New York State Forest Preserve and other parks, wild lands, and waters vital to its members and chapters.

Description

The 30,000 members of the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) enjoy hiking, canoeing, kayaking, cross-country skiing, camping, backpacking, biking, mountaineering, snowshoeing, and other "muscle-powered" outdoor activities. And they’re committed to protecting the places they play in, volunteering countless hours to advance ADK’s mission of protecting natural resources and promoting responsible recreation.

Since our founding in 1922 in New York City, ADK has been dedicated to protecting wild lands and waters through environmental advocacy and trail construction and maintenance. It continues as a sponsor of the Adirondack High Peaks Summit Stewardship Program. ADK also offers a variety of educational programs, outdoor skills workshops, and lectures aimed at instilling a love of the natural world in people of all ages. We operate the High Peaks Information Center, the Adirondak Loj, the Johns Brook Lodge, and a Wilderness Campground in the Adirondack High Peaks. ADK’s 27 chapters across New York State offer numerous opportunities to get outdoors in the Adirondacks and closer to home, and ADK’s Adventure Travel Program organizes exciting trips to all parts of the globe. ADK also publishes comprehensive hiking, paddling, and winter sports guides and trail maps, as well as books on Adirondack nature, history, and lore.
