Your Adirondack Basecamp

Easy access trails

If you like snowmobiling, you'll love Schroon Lake. Located between Lake George and the Adirondack High Peaks, snowmobilers can find thousands of miles of scenic trails that connect the historic hamlets of the region.

Schroon Lake is perfectly situated to be a basecamp for an array of snowmobiling adventures. There’s a mix of groomed and un-groomed trails to follow, and since many of them connect to each other riders can create their own loops. Stay out for an afternoon, or take several days to hop from town to town. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy seeing the beauty of the Adirondacks in winter — quiet forests, ice-covered lakes, and snowy mountains all await. And whether you decide to stay in Schroon or venture into the nearby communities, along the way you’ll find options for lodging, dining, gassing up, getting repairs, and buying or renting gear. 

Learn more with the blog post "Schroon Lake is for Snowmobilers," which has favorite pit stops. Learn about the new trail from Indian Lake to Newcomb as described in our blog "Don't Hit the Trail Hungry."

New York snowmobile clubs are another great way to find safety tips and updated trail information. For more information, contact the Schroon Lake - North Hudson Snowmobile Club or visit this local snowmobile rental shop!
