Adirondack Outdoor Recreation

It's playtime in upstate New York

Outdoors is what we do.


Outdoor recreation is, without a doubt, the ultimate draw to the Adirondacks. With so much wilderness here, there's a never-ending supply of hiking, paddling, fishing, skiing, and scenic vistas.

This is a place where schedules vanish, the birds are great company, and the awesomeness of the wilderness is something to revel in.

That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
