Lake Placid Parks & Gardens

The Great Outdoors is a experience in the area around Lake Placid, that includes hiking, canoeing and kayaking. The mountains are many and varied, with 46 peaks rising above 4000 feet. The tallest are in the Lake Placid area, with Marcy's being the tallest at 5344ft., which is the highest point in the state. You can enjoy a hike to the summit or go on an equally scenic easy jaunt to many other spectacular vistas.

With over 3000 lakes in the area, finding a place to canoe or kayak is no problem with either a short circuit around Lake Mirror in the centre of Lake Placid Village or a more challenging one in the wilderness canoe area. While the lakes offered the only mode of transportation in the early 1800's, today they are a source of infinite recreation and a mecca for canoeists, kayakers and white water rafters.
