From Mountain Tops To Waterway Trails...

Take a walk along the nature trails at The Wild Center right in Tupper Lake. Grab a delicious picnic to-go and head to an Adirondack lean-to on the handicap accessible John Dillon Park trails or challenge yourself to the new Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge -- three family-friendly peaks that boast stellar panoramic views of the Adirondacks. Whether it is for an hour or for a week, we recommend you spend some time on the trails during your visit.
