FAQs

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.

Can I hike as a solo hiker?

Yes you can. Hike With Jackson requires the purchase of 2 tickets. If another group joins the second ticket can be refunded.

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.

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!

If I don’t have snowshoes or cross country ski but want to book a winter hike what do I do?

Don’t worry! Hike with Jackson has a limited number of Hiking spikes and snowshoes for rent. HWJ also has a partnership with Garnett Hill Lodge which has a great ski center to test equipment all trailside.
