Saranac Lake
Come for the outdoors, stay for the vibe!

We love fall

Saranac Lake takes all of its seasons seriously, but fall is a special time of year. Summer favorites like paddling, hiking, and on- and off-road biking take on a new life as the leaves change. And there's a quiet restfulness that settles over the village as the days get shorter and the nights get cooler. So whether you're coming for a day or a week, enjoy all the colors, flavors, sights, and adventures that autumn in Saranac Lake has to offer.

Make every day decidedly adventurous

Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re in Saranac Lake. There’s fun, adventure, and scenic beauty to be found in every direction! 

Autumn is the perfect time to tackle one or more of the Saranac Lake 6ers, a collection of six beautiful peaks near the village. You'll love the clean mountain air, and earn a patch for completing the challenge. And be sure to ring the bell in Berkely Square when you finish!

In addition to the crisp mountain air, our cold, clear streams hold plenty of trout; the dark water lakes hide bass, pike, plenty of lunkers, and unlimited paddling; the mountain trails will refresh and connect you with nature; and the spas will clear your mind and heal your body.

We are also home to some killer mountain and fat biking trails once the ground firms up. Check here for more information on the two-wheeled adventure that awaits.

Whether you want to spend your getaway on the town, on the water, or on the land, Saranac Lake is the perfect fall destination.

A different kind of downtown

On full display are creative eateries, galleries, and shops. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events, a quick swim, or a world-class menu to peruse, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake is alive with all kinds of activity.  We keep the excitement going year-round with a steady rotation of live music, eclectic art, and decadent dining.

Breathe deep, relax, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style! Find out more with our Visitor's Guide to Saranac Lake to get the inside scoop.
