The wide trails are nearly all one-way, and wind through the woods, up and down hills and along a large stream. The tall trees block the wind preserve the snow cover. Watch out on sunny spring days because the changes from light to shadow can...More

Returned for the first time under the new owners, and enjoyed a great afternoon on the finest groomed trails in upstate NY. Favorite activity, favorite trails, and my favorite trail system. Hope they can keep it going!

Just an hour north of Albany Lake Lapland provides in our mind the best trail and track system. And snow! And great service for the skiers. The Scandinavian touch adds to the experience. As a retired person I can enjoy perfectly groomed trails every day...More
