The Adirondack Park

The Adirondack Park is the largest park in the mainland United States with more than six million acres – about the same size as Vermont. A unique patchwork of public and private land, the park affords access to pristine wilderness and remote backcountry, while maintaining close proximity to all the comforts in nearby resort towns.

This region in northern New York contains more than 3,000 lakes and ponds and 2,000 miles of hiking trails - the nation's largest trail system with destinations ranging from mountain summits to isolated waterfalls and forest glades. In the winter months, enjoy world-class skiing and riding, as well as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skating, and dog sledding.

The Adirondacks are also New York’s tallest peaks – with 42 mountains reaching more than 4,000 feet. Known as the High Peaks, they spread over 1,200 square miles of the park’s northeast corner, including Mount Marcy, New York’s tallest mountain at 5,344 feet.
