Summer: At Home in the Adirondacks
Fully loaded with hiking gear, fishing poles, and roadmaps, your crew hits the road. Destination: the Adirondack Mountains and lakes.
Once here, avid hikers will want to venture into the 46 High Peaks. Shorter hiking trails also abound, providing fantastic views along the way. Take Rooster Comb, a moderate 2.5-mile trek with stunning views.
As the sun sticks around later and later into the evenings, lakeshores become a popular spot for swimming and picnic dinners. Soak up the mountain lake vibes while paddling a kayak or visiting a public beach. To surround yourself with nature while learning about the Adirondack, boat tours are available all summer long on lakes throughout the area, such as aboard the Lake George Steamboat Company’s famous Minne-Ha-Ha..
Rain-soaked days are a chance to bring the adventure indoors. Visiting an Adirondack museum will teach you about this unique wilderness region. But don't forget about the rich Winter Olympic history in the Lake Placid area, what it's like to walk along boreal treetops in Tupper Lake, or how settlers in the 1800s traversed this rugged landscape in Blue Mountain Lake.
Summer in the Adirondacks is a time to relax, adventure, hike, paddle and learn!
