Spring is bike riding, deck chair sitting, microbrew drinking, wine tasting, whitewater rafting, maple tree tapping season in the Adirondacks. It's the perfect excuse for enjoying the region's unspoiled views from your hotel balcony, the seat of your bike, or the tumult of a raft navigating whitewater on the mighty Hudson River.
Explore the Adirondacks' two wine regions to sip some of the best kept secrets in the Northeast. The Adirondack Coast Wine Trail encompasses six wineries and cideries spanning 33 miles along Lake Champlain, while the St. Lawrence Wine Trail travels 80 miles and three wineries. Savor hand crafted ale at one of the many microbreweries located across the Adirondacks, including new tasting and tap rooms.
While the maple sap flows for Adirondack Maple Weekends, the Hudson River Gorge roars with Class IV and V whitewater conditions, ideal for the adventurous spirit to take a once-in-a-lifetime raft down New York's historic waterway. If winter's got you itching to hit the trail, head out on your bike into New York's Forever Wild preserve to explore mountains, valleys, and every singletrack in between.
