The Adirondack Region

The Adirondacks is a region of Northern New York State that lies between the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain. The 6 million acres or 2,486 square kilometers Adirondack Park is located within this region, offering hundreds of miles of paved roadways ideal for motorcycling adventures through some of the most spectacular mountain and lake scenery in the northeastern USA.

A Forever Wild Ride

Easily accessible from the Canadian Border, the Adirondacks are distinct from the rest of New York State in that most of the land is protected by the state constitution as "Forever Wild." The Adirondack Mountains and Forest Preserve allow for unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities, and are home to over 100 small, vibrant communities that welcome visitors year round. Explore the Olympic heritage of Lake Placid, magnificent Lake George which hosts the annual Americade event, the endless waterways of the Adirondack Lakes region, and the exquisite wines of the Adirondack Coast Wine Trail--all from your motorcycle!

Renowned as a haven for adventure seekers, the Adirondacks is also home to a burgeoning foodie scene, with great restaurants and gastro-pubs, charming cafes, and a wide selection of wineries, breweries, cideries and distilleries crafting unique beverages found nowhere else.
From the exceptional to the luxurious, the amenity-rich to rustic cottage, plus hundreds of waterfront campsites, the Adirondacks offer an array of lodging options that provide a perfect welcoming place to rest after an exciting day of riding.
