Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in Upstate NY. The leaves begin to change, the summer heat subsides and crisp fall air replaces the sticky humidity. Though autumn tends to be one of the busiest times of the year, with kids going back to school and adults settling back into their non-summer routines, it’s also a great time to slow down and recognize the natural beauty that surrounds us in this region we call home.
One of the best places to enjoy the fall foliage in the northeast is in the Adirondack Mountains. Just over an hour from the Capital District, the Adirondacks are a perfect fall destination for a day trip, a weekend trip or a full week vacation.
Headed to the Adirondacks this fall? Here are three great ways to enjoy the fall foliage while you’re there!
1. Go For a Hike
Whether you’re an experienced hiker ready to tackle one of the High Peaks or you’re a beginner lacing up your hiking boots for the very first time, fall is the ideal time to hike in the Adirondacks. There are hundreds of trails that range from very easy to very challenging, most of them providing spectacular views of the fall foliage.
2. Go For a Paddle
Paddling on the lakes, streams, ponds and rivers throughout the Adirondacks during the fall is almost magical. You can enjoy amazing views of the leaves changing around you and see the colors reflected in the water as you paddle around.
3. Go For a Drive
Taking a long drive on the mountain roads that weave through the Adirondacks is perhaps one of the most relaxing, refreshing ways to enjoy the fall foliage. You can sit back, relax and watch as the colorful trees and leaves go by. Don’t feel like driving yourself? Premiere Transportation can help with that!
