Even with today's modern equipment and sophisticated maps, scaling all 46 High Peaks and joining the coveted Adirondack 46er club is no small feat. Now imagine how challenging it would've been back in the 1930s! In 1937, the 46er club expanded to include 9 people, and the only woman in that club at the time is now immortalized in one of the Peaks she scaled.

July will be here before we know it, which means it's almost time for 4th of July festivities. The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership recently announced the schedule for the 2015 Best 4th In The North Celebration, and once you see it, you'll definitely want to work this event into your Independence Day plans!

Typically, the Adirondack Region is a peaceful place to relax, enjoy nature, or take advantage of the many recreational opportunities the mountains, trails, and waterways have to offer. This weekend, though, the Park will play host to an all-out brawl for a good cause!

If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, let us help. Check out our roundup of some of the top events in the region, then get out and enjoy!

An Adirondack Woof Stock comes to Chestertown NY for the first time ever June 20 - 21. This "Weekend of Peace, Paws, and Music" is expected to draw thousands of dogs and their humans to come celebrate the iconic music and culture of the 60's and man's best friend with family-friendly, dog-friendly entertainment.

According to a recent article in The Post Star, the event has been growing faster than expected as different groups and vendors sign on from all over the East Coast to participate in this groovy event. The Tri-Lakes Business Alliance, who is organizing the event, is shocked at how large it's becoming.

It's not the first of its kind, and other Woof Stock festivals throughout the nation draw tens of thousands annually, so we can expect this to be a "big woof" in the Adirondacks as well.

The first-ever Adirondack Woof Stock will feature dog demonstrations and activities, music, vendors and much more. Some highlights include:

"June 6 is National Trails Day!" You may have heard this in your outdoor activity circles or seen it on websites or events calendars, but do you actually know what it is? Fear not! We've got all the information you need to know about this special day.
