Explore our trails
Trails, trails, trails. The trails in the Tupper Lake region lead to picturesque waterfalls and mountaintops. An authentic Adirondack experience is not complete without getting in a good hike, and Tupper Lake has a range of options to choose from. Follow a gently rolling multi-use trail along a river or embark on a mountain hike to a fabulous 360-degree view.
From summits to waterways
Whether it is for an hour or for a week, we recommend you spend some time on the trails.
- Take an easy walk along the nature trails at The Wild Center, located right in Tupper Lake.
- Grab a delicious picnic to-go and head to an Adirondack lean-to on the wheelchair accessible John Dillon Park trails.
- Challenge yourself to the Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge -- three family-friendly peaks that boast stellar panoramic views of the Adirondacks.
