Directions to the Adirondack Park

The Adirondack Park is accessed by several major thruways and smaller connecting state and local highways. The Northway (a northern extension of I-87 that connects Albany, New York to Canada) has won several scenic highway awards and provides easy access to various Adirondack communities from which you can reach recreational facilities and Forest Preserve lands.

From the South:

Take Interstate 87 North (often referred to as the Northway) to exits 20 through 39 (or US Route 9). Each of these exits will lead you to various Adirondack communities, state and local highways that provide access to Forest Preserve lands and recreational facilities.

A variety of routes are available to visitors from the east. From Massachusetts and points south access Interstate 90 and then Interstate 87 or US Route 9 heading north. From Vermont and New Hampshire, several ferries cross Lake Champlain. You may also cross Lake Champlain at the picturesque Crown Point Bridge connecting Vermont Highway 17 with Essex County Route 8. US Route 4 connects with NY Route 22, providing access to the southeastern portion of the Park.

From the West:

Take the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90) to exits 31 through 24. These exits lead to access various Adirondack communities and state & local highways that then provide access to Forest Preserve lands and recreational facilities

A number of bridges crossing the St. Lawrence River provide access to highways the connect to NY State Routes 3, 30 and 812, which provide access to the northwestern portion of the Park as well as connections to the remainder of the region.
