Spring Activities in Saranac Lake, NY
Spring’s in the air, even if Old Man Winter probably isn’t entirely out of the picture quite yet here in Upstate New York. A getaway to Saranac Waterfront Lodge puts the many wonders of the Adirondack Mountain springtime on a platter for you, while ensuring you’ve got the very finest in lakeside hospitality that the season has to offer!
Enjoying the Adirondack Spring on a Stay at Saranac Waterfront Lodge
As the days lengthen, the sun climbs higher in its arc, and the snow starts to retreat, a marvelous time of transition defines the Adirondack environment as well as Saranac Lake, NY’s activities calendar. There’s no better place to experience this stirring seasonal unfolding than Saranac Lake Lodge, where our guest rooms and suites nestle you along the gorgeous shoreline of Lake Flower’s Pontiac Bay.
The Adirondack Mountains that enfold us are a year-round destination for outdoor recreation, and the springtime window can run the spectrum from snowsports—spring skiing and boarding can be fabulous up at Whiteface Mountain or the Mount Pisgah Recreation Center—to hiking and paddling.
Wander local trails such as those of The Pines network to spy emerging spring wildflowers. If conditions permit, the longer days and balmier temperatures may be perfect for scaling local heights. Summiting the six main Adirondack peaks that surround Saranac Lake, for example—McKenzie, Ampersand, Scarface, Haystack, St. Regis, and Baker—sees you complete the bragging-rights-worthy Saranac Lake 6er Challenge.
Then there’s all the cycling opening up, around town and beyond along routes such as the Adirondack Rail Trail, plus, as spring eases into early summer, the world-class paddling: from Lake Flower at our doorstep to the St. Regis Canoe Area.
There’s plenty of arts-and-culture goodness to attend to in spring as well, from seasonal festivals such as Mountain Mudfest at Mount Pisgah to museums (such as the fascinating Saranac Laboratory Museum) and our many local art galleries. Don’t forget to indulge in some great eats during Savor SLK restaurant week.
