Hiking in the Adirondacks

Hiking in the Adirondacks holds a limitless choice for adventure and solitude. Hamilton County resides fully within the Adirondack Park as one of its largest counties. A large portion of this county is publicly owned and available for recreation, and hiking trails dot the landscape opening up opportunities for young and old, new and experienced, and trips that can be planned for under an hour to a multi day excursion.

Year-round Fun for all Abilities

Of course hiking doesn't always involve a challenge, maybe you want a short walk in the woods – try Cathedral Pines. Want that challenge; you could visit Snowy Mountain for a more trying hike to outstanding views of the Little High Peaks.

Hiking in the Adirondacks doesn't stop there, we get some of the best snow in the northeast and hiking is a four-season activity. Strap on your snowshoes and head out on a wintery white adventure that might sway your thoughts of a winter wonderland.

Develop your orienteering skills by exploring some of the more remote areas of the county; learn wildflower identification by taking a slow stroll through the backwoods; experience wildlife by sitting along a babbling stream or on the shore of a remote pond. Are you interested in trying something new but are a bit nervous about getting started or where to go; our licensed New York State guides, offer expeditions and educational opportunities into the region's more remote and not so remote areas, no matter the season.
