This iconic upstate mountain range is contained within a 6.1 million-acre state park and includes two peaks that reach more than 5,000 feet. An impressive network of scenic trails attracts nature-loving travelers to this popular park, and calm, beautiful rivers are ideal for canoeing and kayaking.
Picturesque campgrounds make this the perfect stop for visitors to New York looking to escape the city and embrace the beauty of upstate in the spring, summer and fall. And close proximity to Lake Placid, a two-time home to the Olympic Games, makes the Adirondacks a four-season destination, where winter sports lovers can snowboard down White Face Mountain or attempt to land one of the massive professional ski jumps on both feet.
The Adirondack Mountains run through Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, St. Lawrence, Saratoga, Warren, Hamilton, Herkimer and Washington counties. The mountains are bordered by Lake Champlain, Lake George and the Mohawk Valley.
