Paradox, New York

Paradox, NY is conveniently located 6 miles off of Interstate 87 in the Lake Placid area of the Adirondack Mountains. Paradox is situated near three awe-inspiring destinations: Flemings Pond, Paradox Lake and the Hammond Pond Wild Forest.

Paradox, NY

Flemings Pond is a 0.07 square mile lake. It is surrounded by mountains which creates beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the water. In the summer this lake is the perfect spot for swimming and boating. Three trails run along the edge of the lake for hiking and biking. They are the Peaked Hill Trail, the Long Swing Trail and the Bear Pond Trail. Both Flemings Pond and Paradox Lake are open for ice fishing in the winter.

Paradox Lake is 1.42 square mile lake. It is known for its fishing; there are a lot of salmon, trout, pike and bass to catch here. Spectacle Pond Trail, Berrymile Pond Trail and Pharaoh Mountain Trail provide excellent areas for hiking and biking. Swimming and boating are also popular summertime activities.

Hammond Pond Wild Forest is owned by the state of New York. It contains over 40,000 acres of wild forest, which is undeveloped land that is better able to endure human presence than a wilderness. Hammond Pond Wild Forest has about 6 miles of trails, and the state of New York is planning to build more soon.

There are no motels or hotels in the Paradox area. About 10 miles away in the Schroon Lake area there are four motels. In Paradox, there are campgrounds and cabins available for rent. There is also an impressive collection of private homes for rent. Some of these homes are waterfront, and some have private beaches. There are houses with acreage for privacy. An historic farmhouse is available as well as a stunning contemporary home. The Lake Paradise Club also offers houses for rent in its complex which includes a swimming beach, kayaks, canoes, sailboats and a tennis court.

Another fun destination in the Paradox area is the Paradox General Store and Café. The general store carries hiking and fishing gear suitable for the Adirondacks. The café serves homemade food in an old-fashioned atmosphere.

Paradox, New York offers many activities for the visitor. Everyone can find something fun to do while they enjoy the spectacular scenery of this beautiful area.
