We enjoyed the Brewster Peninsula trails. Walked to them from out hotel in Lake Placid. Great little hike that took a couple hours. One of the paths follows along Lake Placid, don't miss that one. And make sure you take a map at the entrance.

The trails were well cared for nice and easy. It's more a walk in the woods then a true hike for the real diehards. It would be a great place to take kids or for an inexperienced hiker. There are some nice views of Lake...More

Great way to spend a couple of sunny hours outdoors away from the crowd! Close to the village, this trail is quiet and beautiful.

We love this walk any time of year. We took our dog yesterday and the trail was well packed...did not need snow shows or cross country skis. I did have ski poles which helped a bit but were not necessary. Someone had been there on...More

We had a wonderful hike on this trail. It is very well marked, very easy to walk and beautiful. The smell of the outdoors is one of favorites and through the trees, it smells and feels so fresh. We loved it.

First let me say that there is a Welcome/Visitor Center in downtown Lake Placid. They are very helpful in recommending trails, and directions. Also, if you go to this link it will give you information on the trail and... More

I believe there are signs saying "no swimming" but I am not positive. There is a dock and the trail is right next to the lake. It is technically private property so please respect the signs.
