Hiking

ATTENTION: NYSDEC-controlled fire towers are open to visitors. Only one household group should be in the fire tower cab, groups should social distance on the summit while waiting to climb to the cab, sanitize hands before and after being on the fire tower, and wear masks.

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.
