The name Adirondack was originally a term the Iroquois used to refer to the Algonquins who were forced to live on tree buds and bark during the severe winters. It means "They Who Eat Trees" or "Bark Eaters". The birth of the Adirondack Mountains started over a billion years ago. Some of the oldest rocks on earth are found here. More recently the area was covered by an ice sheet over a mile thick and when the ice receded, about 10,000 years ago, it left behind many mountain valleys and some 3,000 lakes and ponds. In 1885 the New York State Legislature set aside "The lands now or hereafter constituting the Forest Preserve shall be forever kept as wild forest lands. They shall not be sold, nor shall they be leased or taken by any person or corporation, public or private." 1892 New York State Legislature again acted and designated the area a State Park. Today the Adirondack Park covers nearly six million acres forming a wilderness region the size of Yellowstone and Grand Canyon National Parks combined. The Adirondack region is made up of hundreds of peaks and foothills, with more than 40 summits higher than 4,000 feet. The tallest is Mount Marcy at 5,344 feet, the highest point in the State. List only sites that are relevant to the area of the Adirondacks. Example sites that deal with information about a large area of the Adirondacks that is more than one county. If your site is relevant to a single county or locality in the Adirondacks find the proper county or locality in New York and list it in the appropriate category or subcategory.
