The William C. Whitney Wilderness Area is one of the newest wilderness areas in the Adirondacks, having been opened to the public in 1998 following the purchase of the land the year before by the State of New York. The area contains three major lakes along with numerous smaller ponds and streams. Not only that there are miles of trails and through connections with other adjacent State lands, longer and more extensive trips throughout the region are possible.
