With long, sunny days on the horizon and plants blooming all around, it’s no surprise we have summer activities near Lake George on the brain!
After a long winter (and an even longer year), more and more ADK businesses are reopening for the season every week. Don’t miss out on exploring the Adirondack Park on your terms. It’s time to plan your summer trip to Alpine Lodge!
When most of us think of summer in the Adirondacks, we’re thinking of outdoor adventure! From white water rafting to hiking the high peaks, there’s no place better for the adventure enthusiast than North Creek, NY. And now there’s even more to explore.
Those world-famous mountain sides and ski trails make for an epic mountain biking trip. Hit the 15km single track trail system located in North Creek’s Ski Bowl Park or head up to Garnet Hill Trails to explore their new flow and single track trails.
If you love the idea of getting outside, but aren’t into the adrenaline rush of an off-road ride, try something a little more serene and head to the water! North Creek is a great jumping off point for the region’s best fishing. And with hundreds of creeks, ponds, lakes, and rivers with public access, much of these spots remain untapped.
Another of our favorite summer activities near Lake George is a trip to the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves just up the road in Pottersville. Explore the largest marble cave entrance in the eastern U.S. on a self-guided hike and witness some of the Adirondacks’ ancient geology.
The 3/4 mile trail features the massive Stone Bridge, Trout Brook, the old Sawmill Site Waterfalls, Artists’ Gorge, and several surface caves and grottos. Be sure to book your visit ahead of time! Doing the Chester Challenge? There are two trails on property that qualify for the challenge.
Thinking of sticking around town during your visit? There’s so much to do right in North Creek! Shop the area’s best products on Thursdays at the North Creek Farmers’ Market. And every Saturday, enjoy live music 6 – 9 PM at Riverfront Park.
Whatever your flavor, there’s something to explore this summer in the Adirondacks. Plan your getaway today!
