But our trails aren’t limited to two-legged adventurers! The Adirondack Hub has the trails, amenities, and parking to accommodate the equestrian crowd as well!

On the Town
The Adirondack Hub has all kinds of adventure, but we also have tons of flavors that will scratch your culinary itch as well!
Last summer Paradox Brewery opened its new facility right near the state’s Frontier Town campground, and in addition to amazing brews, there is a huge wrap-around deck with outdoor seating and local food trucks to help you refuel after a day on the trails.
Lake Harris Lodge is also new this year, and adds a bit of glamour to the Hub with it’s gorgeous dining room and glamping options. If camping and eating are on the agenda, then the Newcomb Cafe and Campground is another great option for those looking to get an early start.
Our local flavor creators didn’t spend most of this year sitting idly by. Pitkin’s Restaurant in Schroon Lake underwent a major renovation, including a brand-new outdoor patio, which is the perfect place to enjoy dinner in a hoodie as the fall colors abound. Just down the road, 9 Mile Coffee was also spruced up. While the delicious coffee, food, and amazing hospitality remain the same, our local businesses continue to improve!
