Your Adirondack Basecamp

Whether expert or beginner — choose from over 50 miles of trails

A wonderful way to enjoy the scenic wilderness of the Adirondacks is on horseback. Horseback riding is a celebrated tradition in the Schroon Lake Region, which offers a range of options for equine lovers of all levels. Try a guided riding tour on a horse chosen to fit your skill level and personality! Or, embark on your own adventure on over 50 miles of equestrian trails through woods, backcountry, and along waterways with stunning mountain backdrops. The Frontier Town Campground, which offers 33 equestrian camping sites, can accommodate multi-day trips. 

Guided tours

Circle B Ranch, located in Chestertown, just outside of Schroon Lake, offers four seasons of riding. You can take a guided tour or venture out on your own. In summer and fall — when the foliage is bursting with color — you have over 500 acres to choose from. Circle B also offers nostalgic hayrides in fall. In the winter, they offer horse-drawn carriage rides or a romantic sleigh ride. Sit back as the horse takes you on an unforgettable sightseeing trip through the beautiful Adirondacks. No previous riding experience is needed here!

Choose your own adventure and equestrian camping

Choose from over 50 miles of equestrian trails, accessible from or near the brand new Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area in North Hudson, NY. Frontier Town makes a great basecamp for all your riding throughout the area, with 19 equestrian camping sites, each with two tie stalls. In addition, there are thirteen horse tie stalls next to the camping pads. Trails lead to several scenic overlooks including the Schroon River. Check out this list and map of trails to craft the perfect ride. 

Wagon rides

Get historic and scenic with a horse and wagon ride starting at the famed Great Camp Santanoni, a landmark estate where some of the wealthiest New Yorkers vacationed during the Gilded Age. Call ahead for reservations.

Leave No Trace

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
