Hiking

Explore our trails

Trails, trails, trails. The trails in the Tupper Lake region lead to picturesque waterfalls and mountaintops. An authentic Adirondack vacation 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 during your visit. Before heading out, be sure to review the Leave No Trace Principles to ensure you're protecting the Adirondacks for future generations! 

  • 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.
