September 19: Marion River Carry

The kind permission of a private landowner will allow us to explore some of the route of the old Marion River Railroad, doubly celebrated at the Adirondack Experience in two vintage and perennially popular exhibits. We may have to slosh through shallow water in a place or two as we enjoy the history and natural history of the area. Waterproof shoes are recommended for this walk.

Arrive to ADKX by 12:45 PM. The group will caravan over to the unmarked trailhead at 1:00 PM. 

What to Bring: Proper footwear for a hike like sneakers or boots, appropriate clothing, water and snacks if desired.

Registration required for this hike. Directions and more information will be sent once you register. Click HERE to register
