You are invited to explore one of the USA's largest state park in upstate New York. Visit the Adirondack Park, our North Country - 1,000 million years old, 6 million acres, 160 miles wide, 1 mile high, 30,000 miles of streams, 1,000 miles of rivers, 3,000 ponds and lakes, 2,000 miles of trails. We have a lot to share!  

Adirondack's History:

The Adirondack Park was created in 1882 by the NY State Legislature and includes 6 million acres of public and private land. The Park is part of the Canadian Shield which are relative young mountains born as a result of uplift, followed by etching and carving by glaciers. The mountains continue to grow at a rate of 1.5 millimeters annually! The Adirondacks is home to over 130,000 New Yorkers with 105 towns and villages. It is the most unusual park in the US with its special untouched forest, thousands of ponds and lakes, wilderness trails and spectacular mountains! The Adirondacks were originally claimed by two Indian nations, the Iroquois and the Algonquins. The name “Adirondack” is still challenged today; but some say it is an authentic Indian word used by the Iroquois who referred to the Algonquins who were forced to live of tree buds and bark during hard winters. Other historians say is was derived from a tribe of the St. Lawrence back in the 1500’s and meant “They off the Great Rocks.”
