Adirondack Mountain Reserve (AMR) parking reservations

In 2021, the Adirondack Mountain Reserve (AMR) and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) launched a pilot reservation program to test visitor management based on available parking at the privately owned Adirondack Mountain Reserve. (For reference, this parking may also be referred to as the Saint Huberts parking and it is here that all hikes leaving from Lake Road begin.) The AMR is a privately owned 7,000-acre land parcel located in the Town of Keene Valley that allows for limited public access to the High Peaks through a conservation easement agreement with DEC.

 

In 2022, the reservation system will again be used to improve safety issues centered around general congestion and parking in the High Peaks Region. In recent years pedestrian traffic, illegal parking, and roadside stopping along Route 73, have created a dangerous environment for hikers and motorists alike. This system will also continue to help trip planning, ensuring that you will have a spot upon arrival.

 

The details: This is a no-cost, FREE reservation system designed to protect public safety at this heavily traveled location and study impacts to resources based on visitation. The reservation system will only run from May 1 to October 1. Booking will be for two weeks out at a time only. Walk-ins without a reservation will not be permitted. The reservation system applies to visitors using the AMR lot arriving by car, bicycle, or on foot.

If you are using a trailhead off Lake Road or a trailhead that is accessed through AMR lands, you need a reservation.

 

The following hikes are included on that list:

 

  • Indian Head/ Fish Hawk Cliffs

  • Rainbow Falls

  • Beaver Meadow Falls

  • Noonmark Mountain

  • Round Mountain

  • Colvin

  • Blake

  • Dial 

  • Nippletop

  • Sawteeth

  • Pyramid Peak

In addition, if you have a Great Range Traverse planned starting on AMR lands or plan to section hike part of the Great Range from AMR lands, you will need a reservation.

 

The High Peaks in the Great Range are:

  • Lower Wolfjaw

  • Upper Wolfjaw

  • Armstrong

  • Gothics

  • Saddleback

  • Basin

  • Haystack

  • Mount Marcy

The reservation system is NOT for the entire Adirondack Park, just for hikes beginning on AMR lands.

 

Reserve your parking on the AMR website.
