Love fall? We do!
There’s nothing like fall in the Adirondacks. The warm days, the crisp nights, the smell of campfire on the wind, the freshly harvested food, and the colors. Our fall foliage is bright, varied, and unreal. You have to see it to believe it and, take it from us, there’s a lot to see.
Peak foliage happens a little earlier in the higher elevations, so get to places like Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, and Wilmington earlier in the season to see the mountains on full display. There’s hiking, paddling, mountain biking, and tons of chances to explore that will keep you falling in love with the Adirondacks over and over again. Or head to Tupper Lake for fishing, stargazing, family friendly hikes, and stunning golf scenery. Love the water? The historic Adirondack Coast is home to Lake Champlain, a perfect mirror for the autumn colors. It’s also a place where farm-to-table happens daily — grab something to go from a farm store and hit a CATS trail for an easy hike to an unforgettable view. Hamilton County has the best of both worlds — the lakes are a water-lover’s paradise while the nearby mountains are big and beautiful. And don’t miss the heart of the Adirondacks, the Adirondack Hub, where small towns and big outdoors are connected by the most photogenic backroads anywhere.
Wherever you go, you’ll see a new and exciting part of the Adirondacks made even more colorful by our most kaleidoscopic season.
