Naturally Beautiful

In Saranac Lake, we take the outdoors seriously, so if you're looking for endless options to get out you've come to the right place.

Hit the trail

Start right in town with the easy, 0.9-mile hike to the summit of Baker Mountain and enjoy sweeping views of the Adirondack High Peaks. If you want more, take on the rest of the Saranac Lake 6ers. There are six mountains, including Baker, in the Saranac Lake region that need to be climbed to earn the 6er patch. Take the challenge! If you want something more low key, try the short walk to the Middle Saranac Lake beach, or spend and afternoon exploring the trails at the Paul Smith's VIC.

Hit the water

Rent a canoe, kayak, or stand up paddleboard from one of our gear shops and launch right from downtown. The Saranac River is a great choice for a mellw river run, while Lake Flower can get you out into nature in no time.

When you've had your fill of stretching your legs, kick back and relax in town! There's something going on every week in Saranac Lake, so check out the events calendar, or simply take a stroll though our funky downtown. You'll find artists at work, musicians at play, and plenty of options for food and shopping
