Bar none, hiking is the top recreational activity in the Adirondacks. Around the Lake Placid area, there is no shortage and the routes have become uber popular. All you have to do is take a drive out of Lake Placid on Route 73 on a weekend – any time of year – and you will see for yourself.
But in recent years, more hiking has been added to the menu, with access points just a few minutes by car from the middle of the village.
If you are a fan of the Winter Olympics, one of the best aspects of a stay in Lake Placid is the ability to use Lake Placid winter events to watch Olympians in action.
Our village is fortunate to host World Cup competitions every winter, bringing with them many of the same athletes that you’ll see on television in 2018 when the Winter Games play out in South Korea.
