Upstate Adventures Guides was founded by Alex Marra and Will Soter, two close friends of Destination Backcountry Adventures. Will sits on the NYSOGA Board of Directors and oversees trail maintenance for half of the Catskills Park. On a hike with Upstate you might even explore a trail constructed by Will. Alex is the uncannily accurate meteorologist who founded Hudson Valley Weather; we suspect he has a magic crystal ball.
