Snowshoeing in Saranac Lake
Welcome to winter

Explore

First-time snowshoers should consider getting their winter legs by exploring a well-established, well-maintained trail network. Think of it as a safe introduction to the sport minus the surprises — things like fallen trees — found in the backcountry. Dewey Mountain Recreation Center, just a 1-minute drive from downtown Saranac Lake, is a perfect place to get started. The paths there are well marked and they all lead back to the cozy base lodge. Dewey is also a great place to learn cross-country skiing.

For longer trails and more variety, the Paul Smith’s VIC, located about 15 minutes from downtown, can’t be beat. The property has 40 kilometers of trails and 15 kilometers of groomed trails that snake past expansive wetlands and beautiful, open hardwood forests.

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.
