The Adirondack Hub has everything a fall foliage enthusiast could ask for: cozy lodging, fun and fine dining, and miles and miles of gorgeous scenery. Plus, you get to choose your favorite way to explore the wonders of fall.

Go on a slightly beaten path with our wide range of hikes, from easy kid hikes to more rigorous whole mountains. Our paddling options are a fantastic way to get almost twice the color when you take to our rivers and ponds. Take to our quiet, winding scenic drives by bike or car for a classic American way to explore and wander.

Stay alert and bookmark this page. There will be weekly foliage reports as our corner of the Adirondacks explodes into glorious displays. Don't miss it — plan your Adirondack visit today!
