Start Planning for Fall & Winter

Check out the great events throughout the region such as the Adirondack Moose Festival and once winter hits there is plenty of snow for Adirondack winter activities. Hamilton County is a hot-spot for snowmobiling and offers thousands of miles of trails to ride. Skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing are also great ways to get out and enjoy the Adirondack outdoors in the winter.
