Lapland Lake’s 50km private trail system, designed and maintained by resort operator and former
Olympic skier, Olavi Hirvonen, winds throughout the
property’s 220+ acres. Beautifully wooded trails often
follow alongside streambeds offering stunning vistas to hikers and mountain bikers alike.
winter months 38km of snowcat groomed snow-covered trails suit skiers of all ability levels from flat beginner terrain to rolling hills for intermediate skiers on up to steep uphills and downhills suitable for expert skiers. The 12km ungroomed, marked and mapped snowshoe trail system is a delight for those who wish to enjoy a quiet walk in the woods.
During the spring, summer and fall seasons, the ski and snowshoe trail system converts to a hiking and mountain biking paradise
*. Featured in Mountain Biking Eastern New York, author Michael Margolis calls Lapland Lake’s trail system “a self-enclosed mountain bike mecca” that “provides a variety of mountain bike routes that will appeal to all levels and is a work of trail art”.
Level trails appeal to beginner hikers and mountain bikers, while the intermediate and expert terrain will challenge more experienced enthusiasts. The narrow, winding snowshoe trails offer even more of a challenge and beautiful scenery.
Take a picnic lunch out to the Giant Pine which rests along the shore of the Grant Stream. Adults and children alike will enjoy exploring the water’s inhabitants and studying the flora and fauna of the wooded property.
Several well placed hanging swings make wonderful resting spots
beside the trails.
Be sure to bring your camera to capture images of the beautiful flowers, mosses, mushrooms and wildlife that you may encounter along the way!
The Benson Trailhead of the famed 132-mile marked and
mapped Adirondack-Lake Placid Trail is just a mile
from our door and offers an amazing wilderness experience
for hikers and backcountry ski enthusiasts.
* Please call in advance for mountain biking
conditions. When the ground is wet due to spring rains or to
extended rain events in the summer or fall, trails may be
closed for biking until the ground has had an opportunity to
dry. This helps to prevent erosion and drainage damage to
the trail system.
