Hiking in the East-Central Adirondacks include hikes along the I-87/NY9N corridor between Elizabethtown to the north and NY 8 to the south.  The state lands in this region include Hammond Pond Wild Forest, Giant Mountain Wilderness, Dix Mountain Wilderness, Hoffman Notch Wilderness and Pharaoh Lake Wilderness.  This area also includes Crown Point State Historical Site.  Champlain Area Trails aka CATS also maintains some trails in this area.

There are numerous state campgrounds including Crown Point, Lincoln Pond, Sharp Bridge, Paradox Lake, Putnam Pond, Eagle Point and Rogers Rock in the East-Central Adirondack region that can be used as your base camp. You'll also find roadside primitive campsites as well as backpacking campsites in the area.

The future North Country Trail will travel through this region of the Adirondacks to this National Scenic Trail's eastern terminus at Crown Point near the Champlain Lake Bridge.  The NCT will enter this region in Hoffman Notch Wilderness near Bailey Pond, cross under I-87 near Jones Hill then enter Hammond Pond Wild Forest. We suggest purchasing the guide Eastern Trails and Lake George, Great Sacandaga: Adirondack Park (National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map) to help you plan your Adirondack adventure.
