One of the best ways to explore the Adirondacks is by hiking. You’ll be taken to a wide variety of small towns and hamlets, as you make your way to your trailhead. One of the best resources is courtesy of the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council -- and their extensive website -- with numerous hiking options with descriptions of many less-traveled trails.
