We are in the heart of New
York State's Adirondacks High Peaks Region, where the highest peaks, most
beautiful mountain lakes, and spectacular waterfalls are found. This is a
legendary, historic and truly beautiful area that harkens back to an early,
more simple time. You will love the peacefulness that surrounds you in this
sparsely settled place, and your visit will stay with you forever.
This trip is designed for
energetic folks in good physical condition that can do 6 to 8 miles of hiking
in challenging terrain under diverse conditions. On most hikes you will see few
other people. We will be hiking on well established trails for the most part -
no rock climbing, except to take a dunk in a swimming hole to cool off.
Some of the many hikes and options that are available include:
- The Ausable
River to Lower Ausable Lake and the overlook at Indian Head, passing spectacular waterfalls
up and back along the way
- Nun da ga o Ridge from The Crows to Mt. Weston to "find" Lost Pond and
ramble on for sweeping views of the "High Peaks" - among the best in this range!
- Hurricane Mountain, for its wonderful views of
the Great Range and Champlain Valley
- Cascade Mountain, one of the high peaks with
vistas in every direction
- Noonmark and Round Mountains, real gems with
great high peak views
- The John's Brook Valley for great swimming
- The Upper Boquet River with its hidden
waterfalls - very secluded great for swimming
- John Brown's Farm to see the abolitionist's
last resting place and home
- The Lake Placid Village to poke around the
shops, and the Olympic Center to see the scene of the 1980 Olympics
- Saranac Lake, a great Adirondack village on
Lake Flower with it's old downtown
- Many other trails not mentioned
We stay at a cozy and quiet inn
Valley and Lake Placid in the
heart of the High Peaks Region. Our dinners are at great area restaurants.
