Can I join a hiking tour in upstate New York/CT

I am keen to take a short trip to NY in September, but instead of the usual shopping/seeing friends in NYC I wanted to go away from the city eg Adirondaks/Catskills/Finger Lakes, and experience some of the outdoors.
Im not that keen on the idea of camping but not sure if there are any inn-to-inn walking trips, or groups one can join? I'd like to go for about 3-4 days walking and am relatively fit, eg could do about 20km/day.

Any info gratefully received!

look at REI.com website and click on their traveling ey section. They do offer some inn to inn, hut to hut, and camping trips. 3-4 days would be one of their shorter trips, but they do offer several.

look at the NY NJ Trail conference website

They run lots of organized hikes.

Look at the website for the Appalachian Mountain Club. They do have hiking from hut-to-hut but it is in New Hampshire. However, they have New York and Connecticut chapters that own properties and sponsor weekend hikes.
