Experience winter in the Hub
Welcome to the Adirondack Hub, your new basecamp for winter fun! From the snow-capped mountains to frozen lakes, the scenic beauty of this winter wonderland is only matched by the fun found in the quaint New York towns of Newcomb, North Hudson, Minerva, and Schroon Lake. Don’t let a little cold weather slow you down; there is plenty to do to keep warm. Head outdoors to ski, snowshoe, ice fish, or snowmobile. Afterward, relax by a cozy fire, enjoy a warm drink at a luxurious cabin or lodge, and savor winter.
On the snow
Get your snowshoe on! This is one of the coolest ways to experience our snowy landscape. From relaxed walks to more demanding hikes, our wilderness areas are full of variety. Great trails can be found at the Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb and the truly big Pharaoh Lake Wilderness Area.
When the temperatures cool down, Nordic ski season heats up! Glide or skate down perfect, snowy trails to backcountry destinations or on easily accessed trails. Either way, you’ll have a great time. You can even ski to a historic Great Camp, while downhill skiers and riders can shred at nearby Gore Mountain.
With miles of winding snow-covered trails, the Adirondack Hub is THE place to snowmobile this winter. Travel through forests, along frozen rivers, and through quaint trail-side communities. You know the saying “all roads lead to Rome”? Well, as it turns out, all snowmobile trails lead to Minerva. Hop on your sled and cruise to Sporty’s Iron Duke Saloon. It’s a wild, fun ride here in the Adirondack Hub!
Make tracks on the trail
So many adventures, so many options! It can be hard to decide what to do on your winter adventure, which is why the Adirondack Wayfinder is such a great tool. Let Wayfinder take the stress out of planning; all you have to do is follow the trail to fun stops throughout the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub. Ice fish, skate, snowshoe, and more, all in a scenic road trip loop!
