Access Adirondacks

Access Adirondacks is a program that was launched in 2014 designed to encourage people who are blind or visually impaired to take advantage of their communities. In the North Country, that means getting out on the lakes, hiking the beautiful Adirondack trails and participating in the cultural community. NCAVI organizes activities, events and trips into the Adirondack Park. If you are interested in learning more about Access Adirondacks contact us at 518-563-9058
