Hiking in the Adirondacks

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” ― John Muir

One of the most popular outdoor activities in Lake Placid is hiking.
With over 2,000 miles of marked hiking trails, the Adirondacks offers some of the best hiking in the east.
Whether you want to take on one of the 46 High Peaks (with elevations over 4,000 ft)
or just take a simple walk through the woods, there’s an option for everyone in the family.
