Welcome to Adirondack Low Peaks and Lands!

ALPL was founded in May of 2015 by Outdoor Photographer/Writer and Adirondack native, Charles Henry Eldridge.

All too often the low peaks and lowlands of the Adirondacks are overshadowed by its High Peaks Region. Not to mention how over-crowded the HPR has become, along with the issues they’re facing because of it.

One of our goals is to relieve some of that pressure, by offering alternatives. Also, not everyone is capable of hiking a High Peak, and there are so many other beautiful areas of the park to explore!

Folks that are not capable of ascending higher peaks and those who have children, are often looking for new places to explore and introduce their kids to the wonderful world of Nature!

ALPL is also about other activities that we enjoy in the lowlands, such as camping, canoeing, kayaking, SUP (Stand Up Paddling), biking, festivals, fairs, concerts, galleries, museums, etc…

ADK Low Peaks and Lands was created to honor all of these areas, as well as highlighting the small businesses, 501c3’s i.e. environmental groups, museums, galleries etc. of the Adirondack Park and its surrounding Foothills, through social media and publishing stories, here on our website, about the history of the Adirondacks, the present and future, pertaining to its land, water, people and wildlife…
