Garden Parking and Hiker Shuttle Schedule

This is the second-busiest and trailhead in the Adirondacks accessing the High Peaks Wilderness. The lot is filled most of the summer so hikers should prepare for using the shuttle for access.

This daily fee will continue through the month of October. An attendant will be at the Garden Lot from 1:00pm until 7:00pm on Fridays and from 7:00am until 7:00pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays during this period. Town employees and DEC Rangers will monitor the lot during the week.

A sign at the corner of Market and Adirondack Streets will indicate when the Garden Lot is closed.
