    Understandable. We've all been there.

    Which one are you thinking of starting with? One like Esther is virtually impossible to deviate from. Maybe get your feet wet there.

    I am a little hesitant since I've never hiked one yet.

    I'd argue that some of the herd paths are even *more* well-defined than some of the lesser-used marked trails. Astonishing really.

    Last winter even some of the marked trails were not visible. The markers were buried and there was very little hiker traffic. No signs at all of a treadway. Multiple seams through the woods all looked like feasible choices.

    I would recommend the guidebook and map for anybody thinking of setting foot on any trail in the Adirondacks.

    I assume you are asking about the "trailless" peaks as you work on your 46? They all have herdpaths that are pretty easy to follow. But not knowing the level of detail you think you need please let us know what your concerns are. Are you anxious about traveling on those herdpaths? I remember I was when I first started hiking but after doing a few my fear quickly dissipated. Quite frankly, many are just as defined as many of the marked trails.

    Caltopo.com using the Mapbuilder Topo layer. The indicated trails are routable, which means you can highlight them and the highlight locks to the trail. Then you can save the route you have drawn and export it as a gpx file and get it into a GPS or phone. You may have to register (free) in which case you can save any maps you create.

    If you are referring to the “unmarked trails” in the high peaks simply get the newest version of the ADK Mtn Club map and guidebook. You can find them both here
