Having been a volunteer here for the Adirondack Mountain Club and the 46ers, for over 35 years, I wonder what areas some of the other reviewers are talking about. This is the trail information facility and store at the trailhead leading to several of the high peaks, such as Mt. Marcy, Algonquin, Mt. Colden, and others: it is not a general tourist info center, nor does it have glass-bottomed viewing platforms. Trailhead parking is available here for a fee. Advice is given, but it is couched in terms that leave it up to you to make your own mind up. If you do get advice, take it: these people live and work here, and know the area intimately. It's not the sidewalks of a major city! There are also regulations specific to groups, overnight camping, and fires -- learn about them before you go, or at least learn about them here! Be forewarned: the staff can get a little frustrated at times, especially on days when they've heard the same question dozens of times: cut them some slack.
