They allow us to reflect as we reconnect with nature. We promise that the hiking trails in and around Tupper Lake will lead you on a journey to remember.

From Mountaintops 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.

Before heading out, be sure to review Leave No Trace ethics to ensure you're protecting the Adirondacks for future generations! The DEC is a great resource for more outdoor recreation related information.
