High Adventure

Granite High Adventure lives at the wild heart of the vast Northeast outdoors.  Launch your next adventure in the company of the majestic natural regions of the White Mountains, the Belknap Mountain Range, or the river systems of the North Country.  Our expeditions are carefully crafted for your experienced Scouts: challenging, awe-inspiring, character building.

All our crews are provided with a highly-skilled, trained Trek Leader, trail food, crew gear and transportation to and from trek routes.  With 1,200 square miles of options, there are plenty of ways to custom build a unique trip for your expedition crew and “raise the altitude” even higher.

Three Expedition Packages to Choose From

The Belknap Challenge

High Adventure youth leader training!  Build up a range of outdoor skills in the rugged, 3,500-acre backcountry of Griswold Scout Reservation. Own the solid experience you need to leave the troop trailer behind and head into the backcountry with confidence.  Be one with the wild!

White Mountains Trek

A back-country expedition for tomorrow’s leaders. Spectacular peaks, remote wilderness.   Explore the same terrain that world-class trekkers train on and discover how awesome you are.

Northern Rivers Trek

The rush and spray of whitewater, the misty stillness of a lake at dawn, the rich surprise of a wildlife encounter, the great outdoors and the good company of your crew.  You’ll tell stories about this trip for years!

Book a Full Crew or Apply for Provisional Space

Provisional spaces are available! If you don’t have a full crew to bring, apply anyway and we will do our best to find a way.  Each Trek is guaranteed once one registered adult leader (21+) books a spot.  Spots are assigned to their crew first, and on May 1st all remaining spots will be available for provisional applicants to choose from in the order they made their registrations. 

IMPORTANT:  Make your reservation even if you are placed on a wait list.  We will do our best to make your adventure happen!
