We did this hike based on TripAdvisor recommendations and we were rewarded. This trail was about 4.4 miles round trip and we did it while it was snowing. The trail was well marked and we had no problems despite the very wet and muddy trail....More

Cold, cold, beautiful snowy weather! The entire area is wonderful. We were there at a time when most of the attractions were closed but were still able to travel to places where the views were spectacular! A lovely place to visit.

While visiting Lake Placid, we were hoping to find some exciting outdoor activities. We were surprised to find such a good deal for snow tubing. Only $10 a person. Well the "500 ft" drop for snow tubing was just a little steeper than my backyard....More

We arrived here for our Bobsled adventure and it was amazing. A little wait time but it was worth it to go down the bobsled track. We didn't get to the cross country skiing but maybe next time!

We arrived just at the end of peak leaf season,but what a glorious place. All of the beauty and surrounding area is simply gorgeous. Definitely would recommend stopping here.

We went just before the peak ended. A lot of leaves had fallen but was still very gorgeous made for beautiful pictures. It was about 4.5 miles all the way around but it was a great hike

This was at peak foliage time and the views were outstanding. Well worth the work to get there. Round trip is 4.4 miles and not too hard an ascent.

Don't miss driving to Mount Van Hoevenberg. If you never ski, it's just a beautiful view and a very special place. We never tire of Lake Placid and the attractions in the area. Thankfully, it is not "touristy."

Nice hike that will take 2-3 hours gradually up a mountain. The view at the top was very beautiful. For us it was the perfect hike that only took half a day.

This hike was moderate - not super difficult but definitely sweat-inducing. Took about 4 hours round trip including a nice break at the summit for a picnic lunch.

Can't give you a positive answer. There is a telephone number you can call on Monday (they are closed on Sundays) and in all likelihood get the answer you need: Lake Placid/Essex County Convention and Visitors Bureau 2608... More
