Hub for hikers

Hiking is a favorite in the Adirondacks, and Saranac Lake is a great hub for beginner and experienced hikers alike. Gently meandering paths, trails to lake-side views, and mountaintop vistas all await anyone who hikes here.

Try it, we think you'll like it!

If you're new to hiking, the Saranac Lake 6ers are the best mountains around. Start with Baker Mountain, a 1.8-mile round-trip trail to a stunning view of the surrounding montains and lakes. This hike is suitable for any skill level, with its 890-foot ascent to a 2,457-foot peak. Baker Mountain leaves time to experience a true Adirondack hike and still have time to enjoy other things Saranac Lake has to offer.

For a real challenge, head to the nearby High Peaks Region and start working on the 46 High Peaks, or explore some of the smaller mountains in that area. Either way, you'll find hundreds of miles of beautiful trails that are ready to be explored! ​

Before heading out, be sure to review Leave No Trace ethics to ensure you're protecting the Adirondacks for future generations! The DEC is a great resource for more outdoor recreation related information.
