An authentic Adirondack experience is not complete without spending some quality time on the trail, and Tupper Lake has a range of hiking options for adventurers of all ages and abilities. Discover scenic waterfalls on a rolling multi-use trail, climb to a mountaintop with amazing 360-degree panoramic views, and explore everything in-between.
