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 a wide 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 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

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.
