The morning will be spent at Garnet Hill Lodge learning about paddling techniques as well as the different kinds of boats and equipment available for exploring Adirondack lakes and ponds.

Lunch will be provided by Garnet Hill Lodge and is included in the price of the workshop.

In the afternoon, we will take you out onto the water of 13th Lake for some hands-on practical experience and instruction in canoes and kayaks.

Mountain Biking

Garnet Hill’s mountain biking terrain features 5 miles of new, dedicated single-track mountain biking trails in the Log House Area as well as an extensive network of pre-existing single-track trails, cross country ski trails and dirt and gravel roads. The new trails were built to the highest standards by Wilderness Property Management, a local expert in the bike world, and designed specifically for mountain bikers.

Some of our trails feature fantastic views of the Adirondack’s high peaks, while on others, you will find yourself in a serene wooded setting. After a fantastic time out on the trails, head back to the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center or the Log House Restaurant up at the Lodge for something to eat.
