    A jump to far, what a great complex to visit, very worth while . Would highly recommended.

    For a facility that has been the site of two Olympic Games this is a very historic facility.

    We were lucky enough to go when the 80 meter hill was been used for training juniors, what a great spectacle.

    The “short” trail is actually more difficult and the “long” trail isn’t much longer and is easier. We did the short trail up and the long trail down. The way up is basically climbing up and over boulders at an incline the whole way. Was a lot of fun but pretty intense. This is not your average hike (short trail.) bring plenty of water. Arrive before 8am or at or after 2pm when others are leaving. We got there at 2:30 and had open parking spots. On a Saturday.

    We were only able to do a drive by of this meaningful site. The burial spot was beautiful and moving with a statue and flowers and appropriate small signs. It is a must see for history buffs and civil rights activists. There are buildings which can be toured. Sight is not far from Olympic Si Jump Complex.

    The town of Lake Placid was very nice - the main street lined with many shops and restaurants. Mirror lake was beautiful. Plenty of scenic spots to relax and enjoy.

    Never could access Lake Placid itself. So I have no idea what it looks like, They need to put some access points in to see the Lake.

    We had a nice drive up to see the lake. The fall colors were wonderful, and I made the drive interesting. You need to dress for the weather, because the wind can be very chilly. On a holiday Monday, many shops were super closed.

    Great cross-country skiing. We were novices but took a couple of classes with Sarah and Blaine. Really good teachers, and we learned a lot. Reasonable prices for the introductory classes, too.

    Great place to watch hockey with family and friends we were lucky enough to watch an invitational tournament at the facility w here the USA won there gold medal match against the USSR.

    For a facility that is 23 years old its is a great stadium.

    This church is right on Main Street, Lake Placid. It has very beautiful stained glass windows. The priest is a very good speaker and everyone was very friendly. The music was great with a small choir and excellent organist
