Take in the great outdoors
The Adirondacks boast over 2,000 miles of designated hiking trails, and the Whiteface Region offers immediate access to many of them. For biking and scenic walks, check out the Wild Forest Flume Trail System. It includes approximately 8 miles of trails for four-season recreational activities including mountain biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
Whiteface Mountain offers outstanding skiing and riding in the cold months, and full throttle mountain biking opportunities on its bike park when it gets warm. Competitors should note, they also host the Whiteface Mountain Bike Race. In addition, the town of Wilmington boasts a full-on Mountain Bike Park, also known as the Dirt Skills Park, for excellent fun off the trails.
Fly fishermen and women will be thrilled with some of the best fly fishing waters in the east. Adirondack fly fishing in the Ausable is world renowned. Don't forget to see our guide to the nature paddling trail at Lake Everest for more on-the-water information.
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.
