High Peaks Byway

 

Take exit 30 off the Adirondack Northway and begin your 30-mile drive on Route 73 to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid. The route climbs through narrow passes flanked by towering mountains, sparkling streams, waterfalls and gem-like lakes. The open valley of the Ausable River provides expansive views of the surrounding High Peaks of the Adirondacks.
