ADK 46r Trail Crew – Women Only Weekend 2021 July 17-18

Trail Crew

The ADK 46er Trail Masters, on behalf of the ADK 46er Club welcome you to join a trail crew on an outing! You are sure to walk away feeling a sense of accomplishment and pride, and perhaps a newfound skill or two. Now, we can’t promise there won’t be bug bites, mud, and maybe a few sore muscles to go with…. but we’re hikers, that’s nothing new! Most of all we know that you will leave with a feeling of community and family, forged by hard work with newfound friends, who share your love of the Adirondacks. Everyone is welcome, no experience is needed to participate, and it is not required to be a registered 46er. All tools and daily direction supplied by the Trail Masters.

So, we encourage you, challenge you, to take the leap and choose one (maybe more!) outing and to join the 46er trail crew. There is bound to be something to fit your schedule. Come for one day or stay the weekend and camp out with the crew, whatever works for you. If you do, the next time you trod a trail, you’ll smile with pride knowing you made a positive change in the peaks.

After you sign up (link below), you will receive an email confirming your registration and then an email ~ 1 week before any/all events you signed for with more details and specifics.

Again and most importantly, THANK YOU once again for so generously giving of your time to do the work of the 46ers. You are the backbone of this organization, the heart and soul of this mighty group of hikers! The time you give back to the mountains is truly appreciated.

Thank you!

— The Adirondack 46er Trail Masters: Mark Simpson, Doug Varney, Mary Lamb, Curt Snyder, Brian Hoody, Michele McCall, Victoria Challingsworth

Volunteer Service Award Program

One of the 46ers primary Conservation Programs is the performance of volunteer trail work with the permission of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Our Trailmasters arrange a yearly schedule of activities which is announced each spring. Both members and Aspiring Forty-Sixers are encouraged to participate.

In conjunction with this program the Board has created the Volunteer Service Award program. The Recognition Committee maintain records of time spent by volunteers which qualifies the participants for recognition at various levels of service – 46 hours, 146 hours, 346 hours, 546 hours, 746 hours, and 1046 hours.

Sexual Harassment Training & Policy

Please take note that in 2020, the 46er Executive Board of Directors adopted a new Code of Conduct and Sexual Harassment policy. ALL volunteers will now be required to take the approved sexual harassment online training AND sign the 46er Code of Conduct and Sexual Harassment policy annually*** PRIOR to participating in any volunteer activities.

If you are considering volunteering, please allow yourself enough time to complete the training, which takes approximately 45-50 minutes, so that information can be submitted and entered into our database for reference at each event. Training certificates and signed policies will not be accepted by leaders at events. The Executive Board approved that you will earn 1 hour toward your Volunteer Service Award (VSA) for completing the online training once both your certificate of training completion and signed policy is submitted. Screenshots of training certificates AND signed policies must be sent to Volunteer Coordinators AND emailed directly to our database coordinator at

The link to the approved online training and policy can be found here: We have adopted this policy to protect not only our wonderful and dedicated volunteers, but also the organization that we love. We appreciate your efforts to give back to the mountains.
