Puppy Jackpot

Happy Tails 

Puppy Jackpot is the saying I use for a dog who gets adopted into a great home. There seem to be a lot of winners in the Adirondacks. Living in this dog-friendly community, canines are our constant companions - we tend to do almost everything with them and bring them almost everywhere. They are part of our family, our culture, and our way of life. 

These Adirondack dogs want to share with you some of their favorite ways your dogs can enjoy this area, too, on your next visit. Pack your bags, load up your gear and get ready to have some fun with your furry best friend.

Copperas Pond, is great for hiking, swimming and snowshoeing. Be careful crossing the highway from the parking area to the trailhead. Once on the trail you hike up for a mile or so to Copperas Pond, there is a lean-to with a nice spot for swimming.

Stag Brook Falls this short hike at Whiteface Mountain takes you to a waterfall hidden in the trees with a nice little swimming hole.
