As fall foliage takes center stage in New York’s Adirondack Mountains, nature paints the High Peaks in a dramatic fashion with its striking palette of reds, oranges, and yellows. This September, visit one of the most unique destinations for the avid leaf-peeper, Lake Placid – where you can explore the outdoors, experience the many festive Lake Placid events, and invent your own perfect day to take in the brilliant colors of autumn’s arrival.

Try one of these three ways to enjoy fall’s changing colors in the Adirondacks:

On Two Feet  Head outside to explore Lake Placid on your own two feet and surround yourself with incredible perspectives of fall’s fiery hues. Hiking is a favorite among the many Lake Placid outdoor activities and the extensive Adirondack trail system – over 2,000 miles – offers opportunities to take in all of fall’s colors. Head to higher elevations on one of the 46 High Peaks or check out local wilderness trails including the Peninsula Trails and John Brown’s Farm, a state historic site honoring the former abolitionist, which features nature trails amidst the brilliant leaves. [member]

In a Car Take in fall foliage while driving in a car – and not just the kind with four wheels. At Whiteface Mountain’s Oktoberfest, you can take a ride in one of the gondola cars to the top of Little Whiteface and see panoramic views of this leaf-peeping paradise. Or, jump in a train car aboard the Adirondack Scenic Railroad to zoom by the dazzling fall colors. Finally, take a drive up the Whiteface Veteran’s Memorial Highway in your own car, one of the many Lake Placid scenic drives, as you twist and turn your way up to the windy summit.

Up in the Air You don’t have to stay on the ground to experience leaf peeping in Lake Placid – you can do it from above, too! At Ausable Chasm, you can fly through the air as you traverse between ancient rock formations with the new Rappelling Adventure Tour. Or if you’re searching for a truly new perspective of the beautiful fall landscape, take a seat aboard an Adirondack Scenic Flight and view the foliage from high above the tallest peak you can climb.

Whatever your leaf-peeping mode of transportation, take in fall’s cornucopia of colors in Lake Placid – a destination where leaf-peepers young and old will delight in exploring fall foliage on foot or by trains, planes, and automobiles. Peruse the many Lake Placid lodging options and book your reservation for a fall adventure today!
