Nice walk around the Lake
Jul 2021
The walk around the lake I think was 2.7 miles, beautiful homes and yards along the way. Only certain sections have views of the lake.

So much to do -- and simply beautiful!
Jul 2021
Mirror Lake is breathtaking. Water is cool and refreshing. Strong swimmers enjoy swimming across the lake. Lots of kayak and paddle board opportunities. We enjoyed starting our mornings with a brisk 2.7 mile walking trail around the lake, stopping for coffee and scones downtown.

Beautiful place with lots to do
Jul 2021
This place is a little gem. Despite some rain, we found lots to do and see. We all loved the beauty of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

Beautiful!
Jul 2021
It's a very beautiful lake. If you don't plan to do any boat activities, you can just walk around the lake. You still will enjoy the view.

Beautiful views
Jul 2021 • Family
We enjoyed a stroll around the lake, running in the playground nearby and took a lovely rest with our feet in the water under a tree while my daughter napped. Definitely a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the views!

Beautiful lake without motorized boats
Jul 2021
This lake which borders downtown Lake Placid is a real gem. It is gorgeous. Often the clouds are reflected in the still water. It is peaceful because they don't allow motorized boats. That leaves a lot of room for stand-up paddleboards, row boats, kayaks, etc.
On July 4th they also do a great fireworks show at 9:30pm (from the park at the southern end) which you can see from just about anywhere on the lake. I took some amazing photos of the fireworks reflected off the surface of the lake. I have also taken great shots over the lake (from the great Golden Arrow resort) at sunrise (around 5:30pm in summer).

Beautiful in summer and winter
Feb 2021 • Family
I have now visited in both summer and winter and can say that the lake is magnificent during both seasons. In the winter, it was stunning and covered in snow and ice. It was awesome to be able to walk on to the lake to take pictures and watch the sled dogs run.

Absolutely Lovely
Jun 2021
Mirror Lake is absolutely lovely. At times during the day it is just like a mirror with waters reflecting its surroundings in the calm water. The lake is great for swimming, canoeing or other water activities. One may stroll around the lake on sidewalks and through Lake Placid. Staying on the lake is magical, and sunsets reflecting on the lake are spectacular.

A definite peak experience to behold snd to enjoy
Jun 2021 • Couples
Crystal clear, awesome in its beauty snd tranquility, Mirror Lake reflects like a mirror and is a visual and boating pleasure in Lake Placid. No motor boats allowed, so you can look at people who are paddle boating, kayaking, rowing, paddle boarding , or swimming . Surrounded by mountains in the distance. An Adirondack treasure , and a definite highlight if you are vacationing and staying in a hotel or place overlooking this magnificent lake- hard to get enough of it.
