A new leaf

The days are getting warmer, the trees are budding, the sun is shining a little more each day: it's springtime! Sure, summer, fall, and winter are amazing, but spring brings new life into the communities. Wild lands with wildflowers galore, flowing waterfalls, the adrenaline rush of whitewater rafting, and migrating birds define spring in Hamilton County. And, best of all, there's still plenty of fun in every corner of the county.

New adventures await

Try something new this spring, with your very own outdoor challenge! The waterfall challenge in Hamilton County allows you to get a full tour of all the rushing water around the region. Waterfalls are a sight to see year-round, but they really shine in spring with freshly melted snow filling our waters, increasing the rush of waterfalls all around the region! Crank up the intensity during your stay with whitewater rafting. The headwaters of the Hudson River is full of jagged twists and turns, perfect for a rafting trip full of rapids, bumps, and drops that you can navigate through as you make your way down the river. 

Spring hiking? You got it!

While you might be itching to get up in the peaks, don’t forget! Spring can present some challenging forecasts, snow can last longer in the bigger mountains, and with melt, some dangerous conditions can form with ice and mud. This can also mean snow on a majority of the trail. Low elevation hikes offer a chance to finally see some sprouting flora as you make your way to their peaks!

Love Your ADK

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.
