The amazing and expansive Adirondack Park is a unique wilderness area, a National Historic Landmark and offers the highest peaks in New York State, thousands of miles of hiking trails and canoe routes, numerous scenic highways and byways and unending recreational fun. Recognized in 1892, the six-million-acre privately as well as nationally-owned Adirondack Park draws visitors from all over the world each year to the many towns, villages and hamlets that are scattered throughout. The park is the largest publicly protected area in the contiguous United States, greater in size than Yellowstone, Everglades, Glacier, and Grand Canyon National Park combined.






The recreational activities the Adirondack park offers are endless – from skiing at Whiteface Mountain to ice skating on the Lake Placid Olympic Center and from white water rafting, canoeing and kayaking to hiking on the more then 2,000 miles of the best hiking trails in New York state – this huge playground has adventure for every member of the family. And with the mix of 100 or so towns, cities and villages located within the 6-million-acre Adirondacks Park, cultural opportunities, historically significant sites, family-friendly attractions and unique dining and lodging options abound like you will find in no other park!

 
There's no designated entrance or fee to enter the park. However, there are fees at public and private New York campgrounds within the park.

 
PET POLICY: Most of the Adirondack Park's hiking trails are pet-friendly unless specifically posted with a no-dogs sign. Dogs need to be on a leash and dog clean-up bags are located at posts along many trails.
 
 
NOTE: When the Adirondack Park was created in 1892 by the State of New York - this diverse mountain landscape was a wild place but it wasn't until 1894 that the Adirondack Forest Preserve was established and recognized as a constitutionally protected Forever Wild area. Of the Adirondack Park's 6 million acres, 2.6 million acres are owned by New York State and the remaining 3.4 million acres are privately owned.
