Revolution Rail is a fun excursion activity that allows riders to ride the railroad tracks under their own power and explore a section of the Adirondacks that has never seen passenger traffic. Railbikers check in at the historic North Creek train station, take a short shuttle ride, and then go on their 6 mile round trip tour. The season booked up quickly – they are starting reservations for next summer in November. New in 2020 is the "South" route.
Gore Mountain is not just for skiing. There is a Gondola Ride from the basin which offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy the hiking and mountain biking trails and try disc golf!.
Barton Mines is the oldest family owned and operated mine in the United States. The builder of the Hudson House, George Ringler, started his trucking business hauling garnet from Barton Mines.

For local maple syrup and other unique gifts, this is a must stop. We happened upon her “workshop” during her syrup season and got to see it being made firsthand. She has her trees around the lake and they were collecting the spring run. The wooden house is on the right hand side heading towards Indian Lake and she usually has a flag out by the street. It’s very easy to miss, so start going slower about 14 miles up the road….

Beautiful location and very well done, this is a museum for comfortable walking shoes and at least a couple of hours. There is an outdoor area for the kids where they can play historic games.
The museum collection includes a number of large objects, including a Pullman railroad car, several guide boats and an Idem class racing sailboat, a steam locomotive, a one-room schoolhouse, the rustic "Sunset Cottage", and the Log Hotel, built in 1876 and original to the museum's site, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
A phenomenal 20 minute ride (or longer if desired) of the area around Long Lake. A thrilling takeoff and landing in an seaplace should be on every bucket list.
This highly popular short hike destination right outside of Long Lake is a favorite for families, picnickers, swimmers and anglers. Above the falls there is a canoe launch used for boating up the Raquette River. Below the falls there are picnic spots as well as swimming areas.
Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous. This is the quintessential Adirondack / Lake George Resort with spectacular views without any of the congestion of Lake George, itself. Perfect for lunch on the terrace and there are patios on the water with Adirondack chairs and cocktail menus. There are several small towns en route with their own vistas so the drive is a pleasure as well.
