Schroon Lake has an abundance of great snowshoeing trails. From short, level, and flat, to challenging peaks with incredible winter wonderland views, there are plenty of trails to meet that longing for gorgeous winter scenery and that crisp, pine-scented, air.

The Hoffman Notch Wilderness area is a great place to start. A popular trek for families and beginners is the Big Pond Trail, which is a manageable three mile Adirondack snowshoe hike lasting about two hours.

East of the lake, visitors can take an enchanting moonlight snowshoe trek in the 46,283 acres of Pharaoh Lake Wilderness, experiencing a serene perspective of the forest unlike any other. Crane Pond is an enjoyable choice.

An Adirondack snowshoe vacation:

  • Requires minimal equipment
  • Is a fairly easy winter sport to learn
  • Excellent for families, couples, non-skiers and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds
  • Snowshoe getaways can be as easy or challenging as you desire
