The High Peaks Information Center (HPIC) is a year-round information center located at ADK’s Heart Lake Program Center next to the Van Hoevenberg Trail trailhead and parking lot. The HPIC is an excellent resource for hikers, backpackers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers. Our staff can help with trip planning, gear recommendations, regional weather information, and trail conditions.
The HPIC sells guidebooks and maps as well as last-minute backcountry items—batteries for your flashlight, First-Aid kits, insect repellent, trail mix, and so on. We also rent bear canisters, trail crampons, cross-country skis, snowshoes, apparel, and souvenirs like patches and stickers. Please see our seasonal rental availability and rates here.
