The small Adirondack village of Lake Placid, New York, is well-known for its scenic beauty, winter sports and Olympic past. Although many associate it with snow, fall may be the most picturesque time of year to explore this enchanting place.

Leaf Peeping

Autumn views are endless in Lake Placid. So, grab your sweater and a camera and take in the scenery on a foliage tour (available on land and water) or on the Skyride Experience gondola ride.

The region has its own foliage report that can help you plan your trip around peak autumn sightseeing.

Outdoor Adventures

Every year, Lake Placid draws in thousands of tourists to enjoy a myriad of outdoor activities.

The tree-lined fairways and epic mountain landscapes at the Whiteface Club, make for an especially memorable fall golfing experience.

And from mountains and lakes to valleys, rivers and thousands of miles of trails Lake Placid is a hiker’s utopia. The Adirondack High Peaks are the biggest summits, drawing in crowds of explorers. But as you plan your adventure you will find there are many other treks with great views and fewer people, like the Mt. Van Hoevenberg East Trail, one of the newest trails in the six million acres of Adirondack Park.

Hit the Town

Post adventure, there is plenty to do and see outside of the magical terrain.

Head to town and explore the many award-winning restaurants, or visit the vineyards and breweries for a tasting. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts offers programs in music, theater, dance, art and film, in addition to galleries, exhibitions and workshops to enjoy. And at the local shops you can discover fresh farmers markets finds, fine art and everything in between.

After a busy day, you may also want to wind down with some self-care at a full-service spa, known for custom treatments and local ingredients. Maybe a deep tissue massage after hiking the High Peaks?
