First Wilderness Heritage Corridor

A lake nestled in the forested hills of the First Wilderness

Communities along the Hudson River, upstream from Glens Falls and west of Lake George, have joined together to celebrate their shared history along the earliest route into the heart of the Adirondack wilderness. From the Great Falls of the Hudson, upriver to the dramatic Hudson River Gorge, the stream tumbles over falls and rapids, past dramatic cliffs of magnificent marble impregnated with sharp chunks of gneiss, then slows to flow easily through ice meadows, kept perpetually open by the annual scouring of spring ice floes.
