Keene Valley & High Peaks, NY

Keene Valley is appropriately known as "The Home of the High Peaks." The town is surrounded by some of the highest, most majestic mountains east of the Rockies.Keene Valley Sign

It is just a short drive from Keene Valley to the Tri-Lakes communities - Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake - to the west, the Ausable Valley communities to the north, and the Lake Champlain communities to the east!

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just enjoy the wild and unspoiled charms of nature when you visit Keene Valley.

A climber's paradise (rock and ice) lies on either side of Route 73. The famous "Beer Walls" (each route is named after a brand of that beverage) are a short walk from Chapel Pond.

The mountains are honeycombed with hiking trails that range from rugged, multi-day trips (such as Mount Marcy, New York's highest peak) to easy, family friendly ones (such as the Base of Roaring Brook Falls, on the Giant Mountain trail).

Throughout the High Peaks Wilderness, an estimated 72 different lean-tos are available.

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers can opt either to break their own trails in the wilderness, or to cruise the many groomed ones available.

When the rugged adventures are over for the day, Keene Valley offers relaxation, restoration, and comfort at its many unique restaurants and shops. Enjoy this year round Adirondack resort destination!
