You won't regret the scenic drive up to the Adirondacks from Saratoga. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts or those who just want to get away from it all, the Adirondacks offers nearly limitless options of places to go and activities to partake in.

Adirondack Park is the largest publically protected area in the contiguous United States - it's bigger than Yellowstone National Park, the Everglades, Glacier, and the Grand Canyon National Park combined.

Six million acres include 3,000 ponds and lakes, 2,000 miles of hiking trails, and 46 high peaks. Tackle one of the majestic mountains, try your luck at fishing, or take a scenic boat ride.

Want to hit the trails but don't feel like climbing an entire mountain? Try one of the easier hikes, like the LaChute River Walk Trail. This is one of many easy hikes that's family-friendly and goes right along the LaChute River, which connects Lake George to Lake Champlain. There is truly something for everyone, and activities for all skill levels.

The Adirondacks is also home to a number of wineries, breweries, and restaurants for you to check out before making the beautiful drive back down to Saratoga.
