Best Guided Hikes in Lake George & The Adirondacks
Hikes & Pricing

Now Booking! Hike with Jackson is back to guiding hikes! I am a Low Impact Outdoor Guide, minimal changes will have to be implemented to ensure safety. Groups will be limited to 1 close family unit to reduce risk of group to group transmission. I will be practicing all necessary social distancing protocols while we explore one of the safest places to be during the current pandemic. Sadly no high-fives upon completion of our trips.

Sunset Views over lake

Super Short Hikes with Great Views

We offer a few hikes that are super short just 1 hour round trip with a 20-30 minute break on the top for snacks and photo taking.  These hikes are ideal early morning trips or sunset hikes. For sunrise and sunset hikes, we require headlamps just in case for safety (available for rent).  Hikes are chosen based on where you are staying or coming from to minimize travel time.

  • $40 per person

Book a Planning Session


Exactly which hike will we be doing?

Once you book, we will give you the hike and all information for meeting unless you have a specific hike that you are requesting in advance.

Do you allow dogs?

For safety reasons we can not allow pets on guided hikes.

Is this a good option for someone who has never hiked?

This is the best way for a new hiker or group of hikers with new hikers to experience the joys of hiking without all the stress.

Will you take photos?

Included in your hike is the service of photo taking – so you don’t have to rely on selfies!

Do you offer refunds?

If for any reason you can not make the hike, we offer full refunds up to 48 hours prior to the hike, as we are a small operation, we can offer a full credit for cancelations within 48 hours or a full credit of the funds or a 50% refund for individuals or 75% refund for groups.  This covers the loss of time for planning and lost revenue as we hold that hike time and date for a limited number of people.

Do we have to wear masks the whole time?

No, We will be hiking in the safest place to be during the pandemic…Outside. I will maintain spacing and use my mask whenever that is not possible. I ask that you have your mask ready incase we pass others on the trail in tight sections!

Where will we be meeting you?

I typically drive to your lodging and you follow me in your car from there. If you are staying further away I will provide a meeting point close to the highway on the way to the hike and you follow me in your car from there.

If I don’t have all the clothes on the list provided in the confirmation email what do I do?

The Lake George Factory Outlets are located at Exit 20 of the northway they have a variety of outdoor clothing stores. Plenty of which have serious deals. Fountain Square Outfitters in downtown Glensfalls is a great option for gearing up for our adventures!
