  • This is a "must see" for traveling through the north ADK. The trails are spectacular in variation of environment. I especially recommend the blue trail by stream. Boreal also easy and nice. In...

  • We walked the Heron Marsh Loop trail and it was very nice. Well maintained, quiet, not too busy today, and with wonderful views through the marsh.
  • Absolutely awesome outdoors experience and learning area. Great camping spots, fun trails and plenty of areas to go to just relax in the outdoors while studying. There is also a plethora of places to do scientific research on the wildlife and their habitats all across the VIC and it is extremely useful for certain classes and research projects. And its absolutely beautiful.
