Adirondack Rail Trail

  • 400 Old Military Drive, Lake Placid

A multi-use, multi-season recreation trail

The new Adirondack Rail Trail is a 34-mile, multi-use trail that connects the communities of Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake. Walking, running, bicycling, birding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fat-tire biking, and snowmobiling are all possible on the well-graded, wheelchair accessible trail. 

How to get there

Parking for vehicles and snowmobile trailers is available at the "Snow Fields" located at 400 Old Military Drive near the Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department Building. Please follow the parking signage at this location. For snowmobilers looking to get into the village from the Adirondack Rail Trail and "Snow Fields" parking area, a well-signed trail takes you to the sled parking located on the hill in front of the Crown Plaza in Lake Placid.
