We did this hike based on TripAdvisor recommendations and we were rewarded. This trail was about 4.4 miles round trip and we did it while it was snowing. The trail was well marked and we had no problems despite the very wet and muddy trail. If you dress for the conditions you will have no issues. The trail starts with a long but very easy walk to the mountain. You will encounter, what seemed like a beautiful oasis, on this part of the trail. Stop and take it in. It's wonderful. Once at the summit, there were 3 clearings that offered breathtaking views. When you hit the first clearing take in the views, but keep going on the trail to get to different vantage points. Happy Travels!

Cold, cold, beautiful snowy weather! The entire area is wonderful. We were there at a time when most of the attractions were closed but were still able to travel to places where the views were spectacular! A lovely place to visit.

While visiting Lake Placid, we were hoping to find some exciting outdoor activities. We were surprised to find such a good deal for snow tubing. Only $10 a person. Well the "500 ft" drop for snow tubing was just a little steeper than my backyard. What a let down. Not worth it at all. The snowboarding and ski hill looked just as bad, considering it was right next to the snow tubing.

We arrived here for our Bobsled adventure and it was amazing. A little wait time but it was worth it to go down the bobsled track. We didn't get to the cross country skiing but maybe next time!
