From the early 19th century, the deep woods and lakes of the Adirondack Mountains have beguiled empresses, inspired railroad tycoons and offered solace to poets, painters and authors. Spanning an astounding six million acres, the Adirondacks beckon each new generation to discover what it means to become part of an adventure story centuries in the making.
Six Million Acres - The Forever Wild Park
The Adirondack Region is one of the most diverse destinations on the East Coast, offering unparalleled outdoor recreation throughout its dazzling lakes, wild mountains, and charming towns and villages. Established in 1892 by the State of New York amid concerns for the water and timber resources of the region, the Adirondack Park today covers an area larger in size than New England, and more expansive than Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon and the Great Smokies National Parks combined, and is the largest park in the lower 48 states.
Encompassing millions of acres of public, constitutionally protected forest preserve, as well as privately owned land, the Adirondack Park – in a word – is epic.
