    59.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 8- Silver Lake to Northville: The Final Day

    Day 8 and my final day on the Northville Placid Trail. The longest mileage to date at 24.5 miles was the only thing that stood between me and my goal of completing the NPT. The final day is finally here.

    58.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 7- Piseco to Silver Lake

    58.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 7- Piseco to Silver Lake

    Day 7 and I'm back at the Piseco Route 8 road crossing to begin my final 2-day section to Northville. I'll have new hiking partners coming along the journey on this final 40 mile stretch to Northville to complete my NPT journey. Tonight's destination will have us camping at the fina lean-to on the trail at beautiful Silver Lake. On top of new friends this section will bring more new things into the mix, fully bloomed leaves in the forest, and bugs...So. Many. Bugs.

    57.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 6- Spruce Lake #3 to Piseco

    57.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 6- Spruce Lake #3 to Piseco

    Day 6 would complete this 2-day section and bring Jonathan and I from Spruce Lake to the town of Piseco on one of my shortest days on the trail at only 14 miles. A terrific hike as we continue southbound past Spruce Lake and a some tent campsites, to the "Future Headquarters Bob and Matt Campwood" sign at the Cold Stream, and finishing with the road walk in Piseco. Today's journey will mark 100 miles completed here on my Northville-Placid Trail Journey.

    56.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 5- Wakely Dam to Spruce Lake #3

    56.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 5- Wakely Dam to Spruce Lake #3

    Day 5. The first day of my third section here on the NPT. This two-day section will have me hiking with a new partner, Jonathan Zaharek, where today we'll go 24 miles from Wakely Dam at the Moose River Recreation Area southbound to Spruce Lake #3. I'll discover one of my favorite sections of the trail here, as well as my most challenging stretch of the entire trail (where 100 yards took us 40 minutes to traverse) as I flip-flop the NPT map and begin hiking the second half of this infamous Adirondack trail southbound.

    55.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 4- Wakely Dam to Lake Durant

    55.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 4- Wakely Dam to Lake Durant

    Day 4 on the Northville-Placid Trail and the only day hike on my journey as I section this trail over the course of a month. Today's trail will be quite different from what Josh and I experienced on our first section as we traverse northbound from Wakely Dam to Lake Durant.

    54.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 3- Cold River #2 to Lake Placid

    54.) Northville-Placid Trail: Day 3- Cold River #2 to Lake Placid

    Day 3 on the Northville-Placid Trail will take Josh and I home to Lake Placid from the Cold River Lean-To #2 and complete our first section of the NPT. The day was supposed to be an easier 13-mile day but turned into the most physically and mentally draining day of the entire section. Winter, you can go away anytime now! After today I'm well over 50 miles into the NPT with much more hiking still to come.

Love this podcast!!

I can’t stop listening to these while I run- dreaming of climbing a mountain in the Adirondacks instead... although it has definitely helped my runs which in turn may give me better stamina when I do get up to the adks to hike again! Thanks for this podcast!

Informative Adventure Stories for the True Outdoors-folk

The 46 of 46 Podcast has an amazing way of describing in detail the trails and mountains of all 46 high peaks of the Adirondack Mountains and also keeps you entertained by adding history, storytelling and fun anecdotes. Definitely would reccomend to anyone who loves the Outdoors.

Come and trylol ,

This is hilarious

Hahaha! Hilarious and creative. Just found myself listening to all of them because they are short and easy to give ear to.
