The Adirondacks are an immense blue and green (white in winter) space in which to relax, play, and plot an adventure. This region in northern New York State contains over 3,000 lakes and ponds, 2,000 miles of hiking trails, more four-diamond resorts than any other destination in the state, nearly 100 campgrounds, and of course, the Adirondack mountains.
The Adirondack Mountains of New York, and the majestic High peaks, are a haven for outdoor and indoor recreation of all kinds. Hike the nation's largest trail system, with destinations ranging from mountain summits to isolated waterfalls to forest glades. Canoe, kayak, swim, and fish our 3,000 lakes and ponds and over 1,500 miles of rivers and streams. Discover winter recreation at its finest. Pamper yourself at top-ranked resorts and spas, or camp with your family under the stars. Visit world-class museums and colonial forts, and sample local specialities at a farmers' market. All this and so much more in the Adirondack Region of New York State, just a short drive from many east coast cities.
