Located in northern New York State, the Adirondack Mountain Region is the Northeast’s last great wilderness. Established as a state forest preserve in 1885, the six million acre park boasts more than 2000 lakes and ponds, over 1200 miles of rivers, and some of the highest mountains in the eastern United States. The abundance of water in the midst of mountains is what makes the Adirondack Region so unique.
The Adirondacks have long been recognized as an outdoorsman’s paradise. Many of the lakes, ponds, and rivers connect to form a watery highway through the woods, inviting the boater to explore. Miles of hiking trails provide access to the beauty of the mountain peaks.
Summer and fall are ideal seasons for exploring the Adirondack waterways. While summer days are hot with temperatures in the 70′s and 80′s, the nights are refreshingly cool. Summer gives way to the blaze of autumn colors in late September. Often fall daytime temperatures remain warm in the 60′s and 70′s. The reds and oranges of the maples and the golden hues of the birches provide an impressive backdrop for any activity.
In whatever season you choose to come, the Adirondacks offer the best in outdoor recreation and fun!
