Jackrabbit Trail

The 50-kilometer Jackrabbit Trail runs from Keene, through Lake Placid and Saranac Lake, to Paul Smiths. It is a trail that connects with four ski centers and several backcountry routes along the way.

Trailheads: 15km of trail near ski centers are groomed and subject to a trail fee. Trail maps showing access points and fee areas are available at all ski centers and sport shops or view the Jackrabbit Trail map online.

Dates of Operation: All winter, weather and conditions permitting
Rates: Most of the trail is ungroomed and free. Skiers traversing Cascade Ski Center or the Lake Placid Club Nordic Center (when operating) should pay a trail fee.   These two centers honor each others trail passes.  Mt. Van Hoevenberg (not directly crossed by the Jackrabbit Trail) requires a separate pass - available at Cascade Ski Center.  Skiers may transit the Whiteface Club Nordic Center without paying a fee by adhering to the mostly ungroomed route marked with Jackrabbit Trail markers on posts.  

These extensive trails were built and are maintained by volunteer members of the Adirondack Ski Touring Council.
