Woods, ponds and lake hiking
Some of the best hiking in the Adirondacks can be found along our scenic paths. Hamilton County, the heart of the Adirondacks, has trails that lead their way around pristine ponds, crystal lakes, and abundant wilderness to be explored. Many of these hikes and trails are family-friendly, perfect for kids as they traditionally provide a wider path with less steep areas and need for scrambling. Browse our Adirondack hike and path listings below to discover opportunities for a beautiful new adventure!
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.
The best way to cement your legacy is to pledge to always protect the wild lands and waters of the Adirondacks by practicing Leave No Trace ethics and good stewardship.
