Spring: it's finally here in the Adirondacks and we intend to enjoy every fresh-scented second of it. We're all about the adventure that comes when densely packed snow and ice melt to create Class V rapids on the Hudson River, the thrill of hurtling down a trail on a mountain bike, and casting the season's first line when trout and salmon fishing seasons open on April 1. Please join us in the celebration of spring's return to the Adirondacks.
The Adirondacks are home to a growing community of microbrewers, distillers, cheese-makers, wineries and cideries. Take your taste buds on an Adirondack vacation and sample the delights of the spring season – from seasonal brews to spirited cocktails – and get ready for farmers' markets and homegrown foodie festivals. Explore wine trails on bicycles or savor the distinct flavor of handcrafted cheese made with fresh Adirondack ingredients.
This spring, get outside for unparalleled adventure in the Adirondacks. Head for the nature trails and peaks located at lower elevations. Snow takes longer to melt, at higher elevations, so conditions can be less than ideal for spring hiking. Or, hit the links and play a game of golf on some of the most challenging and scenic courses in the state. Rent a kayak and spend the afternoon exploring scenic shorelines where the wonders of spring start to reveal themselves.
