Blue Mountain Lake, whose sheer beauty is overwhelming, is one of the crown jewels of the Adirondacks. The scenery that you pass while driving there is spectacular.

Its world-famous Adirondack Museum (called "the best of its kind in the world" by the New York Times) takes you back in time with dramatic exhibits that feature every aspect of Adirondack life, from mining and logging to railroads and recreation.

Enjoy the classic, rustic ambience while staying at a Blue Mountain hotel or lodge. Explore the arts, shops, and Blue Mountain restaurants that surround the beautiful area. Or, relax on a guided boat tour of the lake.

Blue Mountain Lake is also a magnet for the outdoor adventurer. The lake is a paddler's and fisherman's paradise, as are other nearby lakes and ponds. Whitewater enthusiasts will find some of the world's finest Class III an IV rapids on the famous Hudson River Gorge, a few minutes away.

The area is loaded with easy-access hiking trails with spectacular views, ranging in difficulty from the demanding Blue Mountain to the relatively easy, but spectacular, Castle Rock.
