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

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

We took our family for a hike up Bald Mountain on a beautiful sunny fall day. I highly recommend this hike. As an advisory, it was very crowded, however safe. The trail is full of roots and you are hiking much of the time rocks so there are many points where a person can trip and fall. The tower is... More

This is a beautiful place. Slow pace, nice people, perfect lakes. Nowhere to be at any time. Few places are more relaxing. The mountains are gorgeous! Amazing road trip!
