30+ mile loops

Hey everyone.
I'm looking for a 30+ mile hike to do over 3 days 2 nights in the ADK. I'm fairly new to the area but I've taken a few backpacking trips in the 20-30 mile range in the ADK. I'm hoping to hike 15-20 miles a day. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

I'd suggest looking at the "Discover" series of guidebooks by Ingersoll and McMartin. I've used the "Discover" series for years. They're very easy to follow and give local history as well as trail hints. The authors also propose "Extended Outings" in the regions. Some of these may be what you're looking for.

Keep us posted on your adventures.

Welcome Joshua. I am in Roc too. There are a few loops in that range using all trail. Almost unlimited options if you are willing to go off trail. The first few that come to mind are: The French Louie Loop in WCLWA, the Cold River Loop in HPWA, the High Falls Loop in 5PWA, Haderondah Loop in HWA.
