GUIDE Client Reviews

“It was easy to recognize that James is a well trained and knowledgeable guide. He knew the trails well and was able to tell us what to expect and where.  He pointed out other High Peaks and provided some history of the area. He is professional, courteous, and made our experience so special.”

– Diane S. (Ballston Lake, NY)

“On my first trip to the Adirondacks, James was an outstanding guide. He went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable even on the strenuous climb. He was patient and very knowledgeable about the mountains. He can point out any peak and provide historical info about the park along the way. 10/10.”

– Paul F (Toledo, OH)

“I was nervous to hike with James because I know he moves fast, but he moved at my pace and made sure I was comfortable the entire day. He also has a seriously effective way of motivating and encouraging people too. Thank you for a great hike!”

– Joe G. (Burlington, VT)


“James has led me on two separate ADK High Peaks hikes. I couldn’t have hoped for a more knowledgable guide. He provided background info on the region and knew exactly what, where, when, and how. I can’t wait to do it again!”

-Dave R. (Brooklyn, NY)
