Who would believe that less than a half day's drive from NY, is the largest expanse of parkland with ancient mountains, dense forests and pristine lakes? I still find it hard to absorb its size, considering its bigger then Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, The Grand Canyon and even the Great Smokey mountains National parks put together. Pick any statistic and it's... More

There are several peaks to choose from if you choose to hike in the Adirondacks. On this particular trip, we chose Mount Colden, further north near Lake Placid. Our intentions were to catch the sunrise so our hike started at 10:30pm & we made it just in time! Total, the 17.5 mile hike kept us on our toes. We chose... More

We travelled through the Adirondacks in mid September just as the colours were changing. The New England States get all the praise for Autumn Colours do not miss route 30. We were impressed with the colours and the wide range of wildlife we encountered and the friendliness of the local people. New York is not just a City, the north... More

We drove west from Lake Placid to view the mountain wilderness, and despite the lack of fall color and the persistent rain, we found the wilderness so lush and peaceful. Slow roads are wonderful.

In full confidence I can say that a visit to The Adirondacks is a peak life experience. I stayed Blue Mountain Lake is beautiful, charming town nicely situated in the middle of the Adirondacks. Nearby Long Lake and literally 1,000 others will keep you in awe while driving, hiking, rafting, boating...whatever draws you in. It's essential you get off the... More

I have been coming to the Lake Placid area for about 25 years. I was hooked on the first trip. The mountains take my breath away. As soon as I get off the exit my stress releases. There is so much to do in the area. I'm most familiar with the town's of Keene, and Lake Placid. Keene is a... More

I was up in the Adirondacks again last weekend, and I honestly believe (and will always believe) that this is one of the most beautiful places on this planet. If you have never been there, plan on spending at least a week or more...you will never see it all. The Adirondacks are the largest park in the Continental U.S., (Yellowstone... More

Specifically I went from the NYS thruway exit in Rome, New York up the Central Adirondack Byway to the Adirondack Trail Byway around the lakes region back to the Olympic Byway which I took east to the Adirondack Northway seeing the High Peaks region and Lake Placid regions. This overall region... More

Off Rt. 28N near the Town of Newcomb, is a dead end road which takes you to the now closed Tahaus Mines (mines not open to the public). Just before reaching the mines site, there is a road to the left taking you to one of the trailheads for Mt. Marcy, the highest mountain in NYS. President Franklin Roosevelt was... More
