Hiking in the Adirondacks
Blessed with myriad hiking trails practically at our doorstep, here’s a series of local hikes you must check out: The Chester Challenge.
The Chester Challenge trails were developed as part of a partnership between the town and the Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play program of Glens Falls Hospital to promote physical activity and wellness in the community. The state-funded program commissioned a Healthy Community Mapping Project that helped identify new areas for public recreation in the town, and town officials worked with local landowners to obtain access to the trail properties. One of the best kept secrets in the Adirondacks, hiking the Chester Challenge will give you a bird’s eye view of surrounding peaks, waterways and nature in our community. Complete all the hikes and earn a pin!
