Scenic Drives

Hit the Road

Autumn, Fall, Leaf-Peeper Season; whatever you call it - the cooler months are the perfect time of year for taking a scenic drive through the Adirondacks. And boy, do we have some amazing scenery. Hop in the car and check out some (or all) of the great routes below. 

Make a Day of it

Of course, driving is fun - but so is hiking. So, how about stopping to hit a trail along the way? Try one of these short 1-2 hour hikes in combination with your travels and you'll get the best of both worlds. And, we know you'll get hungry somewhere along the way, so why not check out the many local eateries and farmers' markets you'll encounter?

All roads lead back to the High Peaks - so you probably should plan to book a stay while you're here. Oh, the Adirondacks... so many ways to enjoy it! What's your favorite?
