Small Towns, Big Miles
In the heart of the Adirondacks, winter’s snows mean one thing: it’s time to ride. Thousands of acres of scenic wild lands, more than 750 miles of trails, and rider-friendly towns full of classic Adirondack charm and hospitality make Hamilton County your top destination for big adventures this winter. Whether you’re a life-long sled-head or this is your first winter riding, beautiful snows and family-friendly adventures await.
Ride, Rest, Repeat
Whether you want to ride for a day or make a vacation of it, there are tons of trail options available, from quick jaunts to wide-ranging loop trails that are well-marked and excellently maintained.
After a day on the trails, you'll find all of the comforts you're looking for in the welcoming small towns of Hamilton County. Here you'll find repair shops, sled rentals, delicious home-cooked food, unique shops full of art, clothing, and outdoor gear, and of course, scenery around every bend.
Inlet and Speculator both offer equipment rentals, and you'll also find restaurants with hearty fare and warm, comfortable lodging options. Inlet is home to a beautiful, historic inn ideal for riders and so comfy you might not want to head out on the trail! Head north and visit Indian Lake, where groomed and backcountry trails abound near the headwaters of the Hudson River. Here you'll find friendly faces, great food, supplies, and a lot of great riding, including on the long stretch of the lake!
Cruise west to Raquette Lake, one of the most historic lakes in the Adirondacks, home to Great Camps and great views. In winter, it’s especially peaceful for riders looking to get away from it all in a tranquil setting surrounded by forest. For riders looking for a bit more excitement, the expanses of Long Lake and lakeside lodging and dining are always enticing to riders, as is Blue Mountain Lake, where winter hiking, snowshoeing, and ice fishing join forces for epic fun.
We've got an app for that
Available for iOS and Android, the Adirondacks USA snowmobile app shows you trails and the amenities you want for your next snowy tour. The app can help you plan your trip and find the all-important trailside gas stations, food, trail conditions and more.
