Fall In The Adirondacks

Check it out!

Fall is one of our favorite times in Tupper Lake because of the beautiful scenery and all of the outdoor activities we have to enjoy it! 

What to do

Fall in Tupper Lake is filled with outdoor activities that are enhanced by the changing colors and brisk weather. Walk the Wild Walk to gain a cool perspective above the tree line, paddle the Raquette River and take in the reflection of the leaves on the water, or hike a mountain and see the canvas of changing leaves below you.

Fall is one of the most scenic times to play 18 holes at The Tupper Lake Golf Club, nestled charmingly among the changing trees. Our eateries and shops only get better as fall approaches and the smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, and apple flow through them.

What is your favorite thing about fall? Come find out as you explore the season in the Adirondacks.

Top places to take in the views

Consider a hike to get the full experience of the changing leaves. The view of the colorful forests from the summit of a mountain is one of the best sights you can expect to see. Try the Tupper Lake Triad in the fall for a different perspective. 

Every fall, check back weekly for updated foliage reports and to track when the best time to come visit is!
