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 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.

  • $30 per person

Lake George Half Day Hikes

There is pretty much nothing more rewarding than seeing Lake George from a mountain top.  Half day hikes take 3-4 hours round trip based on the group fitness level. We work to pair hikers with groups that match their fitness and experience level.

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.
