As August arrives, we all try and push the thoughts of summer coming to an end out of our minds. Here in the Adirondacks the arrival of August means we are that much closer to fall, our favorite time of the year.
The days are warm, the nights are cool and the civility of the park returns. Visitors come from across the state and beyond to hike the hundreds of hiking trails with options for all abilities, from family friendly trails, such as Cobble Hill, to challenging hikes of the Adirondack’s 46 High Peaks. Drive through the Cascade Lakes and you will see that rock climbing is another great Adirondack pastime and our mountains provide a range of rugged cliffs beckoning a climb. Our trails aren’t just made for walking – both mountain and road bikes are thrilling ways to experience the Adirondack Park.
With the abundance of lakes, rivers and streams in the Adirondacks we would be remise not to include the abundance of fishing throughout the park. Pretty much whatever fish species you want to target, we’ve got you covered. You can even troll up some rainbow trout or lake trout right off Main Street in the Olympic Village of Lake Placid, where Mirror Lake offers fishing close to the business district. And at the north end of town you can fish Lake Placid Lake, which yields some lakers of frightening proportions. There’s also the East Branch of the Ausable River, which always plays second fiddle to the famed West Branch but whose fine trout fishing in the town of Keene should not be overlooked.
For those who are looking for more relaxing and less “doing” spend the day Antiquing around the park, stroll Lake Placid’s quaint main street and dine in one of the many trendy restaurants.
Don’t forget, you can always just grab your favorite book and enjoy the view…
