We were given very precise and detailed information on the trail heads we were looking for. It's a real time saver.

We stopped by the ADK visitor center and got terrific information and suggestions based on our interests. As a result, we joined the club. Excellent. Recommend to all hikers of any ability.

Wonderful view of the high peaks of NY from the south. You pull into a large parking area surrounded by greenery and an info kiosk. In the cetetr is a display of the peaks on plexiglass. You can look at the actual peak through it's plexi representation and then look down for name and elevation While here take the road near the entrance to its end and the Hudson River Info Center.

If you happen to be in the area for a hike and have some questions on a route this is a good place to start. The folks here weren't overly friendly, but they were helpful. There are hikes in the area for any level of fitness and experience.

We visited the High Peaks Information Center after we had checked out of our stay at the Loj camping area. We went there to freshen up and get info about our planned hike to Ampersand Mountain. The facilities provided all we needed to clean up and get ready for the day, and the staff were helpful with information about the planned hike. Overall, I'd say this place makes an excellent "home base" for anyone planning to hike in the High Peaks area. Come here for get important info, rent a bear canister (for cheap!), and clean up/relax between hikes. I feel ADK is providing a very valuable resource here.
