What can you do to prepare for the Eclipse? 

Viewing a total solar eclipse in the Adirondacks is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and folks from all over will be visiting. As such, finding lodging before your trip is paramount to having the best possible time while you're here! Since the Eclipse is happening April 8, weather conditions will be variable. Be sure to come prepared, dress appropriately, and stay informed on the weather. If you're looking to get out on the trail, be mindful that it's shoulder season, and your route may be a mix of ice, snow, and mud. Pick a low elevation trail (waterfalls are perfect for Spring!), practice Leave No Trace ethics, and Love Your ADK.
