From the Adirondacks in Upstate New York to the shores of the Great Lakes, New York (NY) hiking has plenty to offer everyone from families to overnight backpackers.
Upstate New York holds the Adirondack Mountains where hikers can enjoy miles of trail through a thick forest of wilderness. Scale steep trails to enjoy mountaintop views or hike around the shores of Lake Champlain. Hike along the Niagara River to view the famous cascading waterfall, the Niagara Falls. Hike south along the Hudson River in the Hudson River Valley and enjoy a more level terrain that would suit families with children.
The Finger Lakes in Finger Lake National Forest treat hikers with gorges, ravines, pastures, and woodlands. Lake hiking is also common along the shores of the Great Lakes and the ever-popular Lake George. Find trails that meander through forests and along rivers in the beautiful Catskill Mountains. Hike secluded trails in these spots or head to Long Island for popular wooded, coastal hikes near New York City.
