The Adirondacks are brimming with adventure
Getting outside is what a visit to Lake Placid is all about. It’s a day hike to an open summit, a snowshoe around John Brown Farm State Historic Site, or a relaxing paddle on Mirror Lake. Our Olympic history is alive in the ski jumps, Olympic Speed Skating Oval, and bobsled run; our highest mountains dominate the skyline, beckoning to those adventurous enough to climb them. Winter, summer, spring, and fall, Lake Placid is the perfect place to get out and do.
Leave No Trace
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
