Hiking to Hurricane Mountain Fire Tower in October. One of the most beautiful trips with great weather and colorful scenery all around. A four or five hour climb with views that get better with altitude, the cherry on top is the tower which you can elect to climb or not. All around views from the top are excellent.

Tahawus Tract. Abandoned ghost town in the Adirondack mountains of New York. Circa 1847 (Blast furnace built) Very few buildings still standing but a beautiful drive through the spacious Adirondack mountains. Enjoy!

** This is what I shared in Survey from state We have camped in many NY and PA stateparks. We thought the daily cleanup of bathrooms was very good, but we thought the overall maintenance of the campsite was poor. The mens bathroom urinal by site 26 was covered over. In one women's bathroom stall the toilet paper was stacked.... More

We spend a lot of time up in the Adirondacks in the summer months! Our favorite hike is Cascade mountain. Have climbed it a number of times and the views are beautiful. So worth the effort!! Easier than most of the other high peaks and a great beginner mountain. Still make sure you & your pets are in shape as... More

Summer 2015 first time we visited Adirondack Park. We do have inflatable boat, so all our water adventures on this boat. It is easy to pack, easy to store inside the car. I would not say it is so easy to use it, still we can take any water adventure we need. It cost less then $200 and it is... More

We traveled through the mountains that seemed to go on forever. It was a wonderful road trip that I hope to take again someday.

We camped at Lake Durant SP. We hiked many trails in and around Indian Lake area. Drove all the scenic roads and enjoyed every mile. Many pretty lakes. Would love to return.

There are so many beautiful lakes for camping. The water is clean, the area is tranquil, and the scenery is spectacular. The small towns in the area, such as Old Forge, are quaint, and have lots of options for shopping and dining.

There is nowhere more beautiful than the Adirondacks. Spend time there and enjoy all there is to offer, especially on the side roads and the lesser known small towns.

The Adirondack Mountains are a sight to be seen weather it is summer, fall, or winter. The peaks of the mountains offer great views after an invigorating hike. With 46 peaks to choose from you can meander a simple path or challenge yourself to a difficult and longer trail. Most trails are dog friendly so they offer your entire family... More
