WELCOME! The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) is dedicated to the protection and responsible recreational use of the New York Forest Preserve, our parks, and other natural lands and waters. The Mid-Hudson Chapter of ADK is a wholly volunteer organization committed to public service and stewardship. It seeks to use a balanced approach to outdoor recreation, advocacy, environmental education, and natural resource conservation. Explore this site to learn more about our local chapter and the larger, state-wide ADK.
Our Mid-Hudson ADK Chapter has been very fortunate to have Brianne Seipp as the editor of our newsletter MidHudson Trails. She has been the voice of MHADK for about a decade, but is unable to continue this work. We suddenly are in need of a motivated volunteer to become editor of our newsletter with the next issue looming.
We need a member who will gather material for our next newsletter period, July-August (June 1st has usually been the cutoff date for receiving articles), edit the material, and format it, both editorially and technically, for publication. The new editor can make whatever design changes they wish and we expect there will be a period of change.
Have you had experience with any publishing programs? Do you enjoy editing the written word? Can you keep on top of Mid-Hudson ADK activites and engage our membership through the written word?
If you are able to do either 1) the technical formatting or 2) the editing piece, please get in touch. Possibly two folks with complementary skills can tackle this job.
Brianne has offered to provide lots of help but we need you to step up to the plate.
If interested, please respond to Sue Mackson, 845-471-9892.
April 6, 2013: Fourteen of us met on this early spring weather perfect day to hike the Stillman Trail from Mountain Road to Route 9W, offering along the way several beautiful views of the Hudson River, on to Butter Hill where we enjoyed a lunch break overlooking the Hudson River. While sharing lively conversations, delicious homemade treats (smoked sausage and jerky) were passed around by some participants.
Yet another very enjoyable outing in the beautiful Hudson Valley as commented by
some of the participants: “A lovely hike with a very friendly and welcoming group!”; “The
members of ADK are all very friendly and welcoming.” –Hike leader Jean-Claude Fouere.

An eager group of MHADKers filled a Metro-North train car early Saturday morning and headed to the Big City for an urban park adventure. This was the first in a planned seven-hike series along the Hudson River, from Manhattan to Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks, organized by Jean-Claude Fouere.
