People from all over the world make the Saranac Lake / Lake Placid Olympic Region a four-season vacation destination.

The 9000-square mile Adirondack Park in northern New York State is the largest natural sanctuary in the lower United

States. The "Forever Wild" article of the State Constitution, written in 1894, makes this area the oldest continually and successfully protected preserve in the world. More than one million acres of the Park are designated as wilderness areas, making the Adirondack region an unspoiled treasure for hikers, hunters, canoeists, fishermen and seasonal recreationists.

Five major drainage basins create 3000 Adirondack lakes and ponds, with tens of thousands of miles of cold, clear rivers, streams and rills. Ancient mountain ranges are traversed by 360 miles of maintained trails and uncharted herd paths. Glaciers that covered the area ten thousand years ago scoured ridges and dammed lakes, creating extensive hardwood ridges and wetlands among the conifer-covered mountains. Whatever you hope to find in a wild northern forest is waiting for you in the Adirondacks. Come and visit!
