Spring is waterfall and whitewater rafting season in the Adirondacks, when melting snow and ice create breathtaking phenomena that may only last until the first buds appear on trees. When the trails clear, spring hiking in lower elevations leads to big rewards. Marvel at OK Slip Falls, or head to High Falls Gorge to experience the thundering power of the rapids from elevated walkways. Experience all three: whitewater rafting, hiking and waterfalls at the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks, Ausable Chasm.
As the air warms and the ground reveals itself, it's time to break out the camp stove and sleeping bag and head for the mountains for an Adirondack vacation. Find glamping resorts, island camping, and remote-access sites – and discover why Adirondack camping is unparalleled. If the idea of roughing it, while romantic, just isn't you, check out all the Adirondack cabins you can book. Find the sweet A-frame cabin or lakefront cottage that you've been dreaming of, check-in and commence relaxation. Stay trailside, lakeside, or mountainside and enjoy the Adirondacks as they come to life this spring.
