Top Answers To Lake George Travel Questions
Answer this1 AnswerAlistair answered:You'll be visiting Lake George a little past peak, but my suggestion would be to get out biking or hiking and enjoy the last of the Adirondacks spectacular fall colors! Foliage usually peaks towards the end of October at this elevation and latitude, but scenery should still be pretty spectacular. LakeGeorge.com has a few tips for good hiking and biking trails here, http://www.lakegeorge.com/fall/hiking.cfm, as does Away.com's sister site, GORP.com, here: http://bit.ly/o0tXBU. Enjoy your visit!
june64 answered:April is the perfect time to come up and visit, with the arrival of warmer spring weather and before things get too crowded up around the village. It might still be a little chilly out on the water, but you should try get out on the lake, either on a motorized tour or via your own steam through rentals from someone like Lake George Kayak (http://www.lakegeorgekayak.com/). On land, there are miles of great lakeside hiking and biking trails. April is also the start of whitewater-rafting season on area rivers including the Hudson, Black, and Moose rivers. The Moose is probably the wildest, though is a bit further from Lake George itself. Adirondack River Outfitters run trips down the Hudson from their base in North River, 27 miles northwest of Lake George Village (http://www.aroadventures.com/welcome.htm). If you're feeling a bit zany, Gore Mountain has its annual end-of-season pond-skimming championships on April 7; more info here: http://www.goremountain.com/mountain/moreinfo.cfm?id=182
Answer this1 AnswerWell, the biggest attraction in the region, open year-round, is Lake George itself and its miles of pristine Adirondacks shoreline. Pack a picnic and go for a hike on miles and miles of trails; grab a fishing rod and canoe and head out onto the lake to angle for trout and smallmouth bass; rent a bike and roll along wide-open greenways or through more technical forested singletrack. There are plenty of backup options if the rain does come, including arcades and laser tag, shopping, and museums (both historical and quirky). However, my best advice for getting the most out of Lake George is to actually get out onto and around the lake. For something more seasonal, you might also consider whitewater rafting on the Lower Hudson River -- though the water will be cold! The Hudson River Rafting Company (http://www.hudsonriverrafting.com/index.asp) runs daylong trips out of North Creek, about 25 miles from Lake George.
