The Park is part of the Canadian Shield which are an older formation underlying half of
Canada. Rocks making up the Adirondacks are about 1 billion years old.
The Adirondacks is home to over 130,000 New Yorkers with 105 towns and villages.
It is the most unusual park in the US with its untouched forest, thousands of ponds
and lakes, wilderness trails and spectacular mountains!
