The Adirondack Park is a natural wilderness unlike any other. Created in 1892 by the State of New York, the park is a constitutionally protected Forever Wild area and spans six million acres. Covering 1/5 of New York, it is the largest publicly protected area in the contiguous United States—and exploring it is no small task.
