Eric Adsit and his pal set off to discover the wild side of the Adirondacks on their motorcycles
Here, adventure beckons with an irresistible pull to be amid wilderness so vast, the possibilities stretch as far as the eye can see, and the spirit can soar.
From winter's array of outdoor sports, including alpine skiing and snowshoeing, to autumn's crisp mornings ideal for hiking and paddling amid colorful fall foliage, the Adirondack Region offers epic adventures all year.
Spring means whitewater rafting on the Hudson, and when you get record-breaking snowfall during winter, you get challenging Class IV and V rapids equal to anything found out west this time of year. Find experienced guides and outfitters who have been navigating the Hudson River's twists and turns for years, and prepare for adventure during the Adirondacks "big water" spring rafting season.
In summer, take the adrenaline sports rush down a miniscule notch with an afternoon of mountain or road biking around the Adirondacks. From the Lake Placid Region's growing number of mountain biking trails, to the scenic road cycling routes found throughout the region and along the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain, there are very few places two wheels can't take you in the Adirondacks.
Don't forget: If you're planning on camping in the Adirondacks this year, spring is a great time to book your site. Popular campgrounds such as the Saranac Lake Islands in the Adirondack Lakes Region, can sell out fast during peak travel times and you don't want to miss out on your own piece of paradise, do you?
