Call it a hike, or call it a climb, but one thing is for certain, Trap Dike is not just a walk in the woods. That’s why it appears on the bucket list of many of the Northeast’s most serious hikers. Deemed the Adirondack’s “best trek” and “best alpine adventure” by the Adirondack Almanack, Trap Dike is one of the High Peaks’ most popular, and challenging, trails. Unlike other open rock slides in the Adirondacks, Trap Dike is in a formidable canyon and there are some serious vertical sections which can require ropes and technical support.
