Welcome to the Long Island Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club
ADK Long Island is a local chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club. Our members are passionate about the wilderness and outdoor recreation. Volunteer-led outings such as hiking, paddling, cycling, cross-country skiing, and backpacking take us to the Hudson Highlands, Catskills, Adirondacks and places far afield, as well as Long Island. We are active in the maintenance and protection of our wilderness and waterways and welcome new members.
TUESDAY, JUNE 6- MAP AND COMPASS SKILLS Knowledge of basic map and compass skills are the key to enjoying the freedom of the mountains.

Skills covered will include; map reading, topography, map orientation, taking and following a bearing and more. Please bring a compass or two if you have them.
