This hike is definitely worth the trip. Some areas are steep, and when you get to the top, it is worth the climb. A great place to sit and meditate or have a pack lunch to enjoy the view. They have guides stationed at the peak to help you reach the top. Great photo shots of other mountains in the... More

We were so surprised and happy to have found this place! The High Peaks Gorge was a pleasant surprise to us and we enjoyed the walk along the trail, and the view of the falls! VERY WELL maintained!!!!

Great place to get accurate and useful information about hiking in the high peaks area. The Center is a must for backpackers. Their selection of goods in the store is also surprisingly comprehensive; you could arrive without a single piece of hiking gear and be well set up by the time you leave (I don't recommend it, though, the prices...

The people down here are definitely the people you want to ask if you have any hiking or woods outing type question. They really do know what they're talking about.

Excellent attitude from young gentleman who was working the gate the day we visited. Gave us good options for other hikes.

Having been a volunteer here for the Adirondack Mountain Club and the 46ers, for over 35 years, I wonder what areas some of the other reviewers are talking about. This is the trail information facility and store at the trailhead leading to several of the high peaks, such as Mt. Marcy, Algonquin, Mt. Colden, and others: it is not a... More

This was our second consecutive year taking a hiking vacation in the High Peaks Adirondacks area - Lake Placid. I love the hiking here. The scenery is breath taking, the challenges demanding, the rewards of scaling a peak worth every drop of sweat. To put my comments in perspective you need to know that I love hiking, and so do...

This is privately owned so there is a fee to enter, but the trails are well maintained and the view is great. There is even a small glass bottom overlook! Don't miss the nature trail after you leave the falls. It is a mile, but is not too difficult and doesn't seem that long.

Helpful...as usual. Has almost everything you need if you forgot something at home for the hike. Not open late...check hours before you leave for the hike.
