Your Adirondack Basecamp

 

Your trail awaits

Grab a pair of skis and use Schroon Lake as your Adirondack cross-country basecamp while exploring the multitude of trails the region has to offer. The wilderness areas surrounding Schroon Lake provide the perfect playground for a cross-country skier. Take your time because there are plenty of trails to discover!

To the west, you'll find the Hoffman Notch Wilderness area's trails, and to the east, the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness—a local favorite. Ski in the shadow of Pharaoh Mountain, and you'll find the wilderness abundant with trails, wildlife, and spectacular views. Touring here is easy with several lean-tos to stop at for lunch or a quick rest. For a list of trails, see a few suggestions below.
