Ice Cream Trail (North)

Ice Cream Trail (North)

Get your licks on Route 86

OK, so maybe this ice cream tour isn’t all on Route 86, but a good portion of it is! Start on the Adirondack Coast, where you can enjoy a cool treat while admiring the beautiful Lake Champlain, then head west into the mountains. Towering peaks, a deep mountain notch, impressive waterfalls, lively towns, and a huge selection of ice cream flavors for your friends, family, and pets to enjoy all make this a trip to remember.
