America's Scenic Byways

Adirondack Trail

188 miles - 5 hours

Adirondack Trail travels north and south for 188 miles through the center of the Adirondack Park in Northern New York.

The Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway makes it easy for visitors to experience the tangible and spiritual benefits of “escaping to the wilderness,” and viewing awe-inspiring scenery while touring one of the world’s most distinctive unspoiled geographic areas, the Adirondack Mountains and adjoining foothills. Travelers connect with nature on lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers, as well as along numerous trails through woods and to peaks, in all four seasons.

In towns and villages along the route interact with interesting people who remain committed to time honored traditions, lifestyles, and values, often expressed along distinctive main streets and in well-maintained homes in turn-of-the-century neighborhoods. Public lodging, dining, and resort facilities evoke the standards of “roughing it” in rustic elegance made famous during the Adirondack Great Camp era.
