Despite the wildness of the Adirondack State Park, it remains remarkably accessible. Its system of 2,000 miles of hiking, biking, and skiing trails is the largest in the nation. The Adirondacks also contain more than 3,000 lakes and ponds, many of which are accessible by canoe and kayak. Its diverse landscapes include bogs and wetlands, boreal and hardwood forests, cascading streams and waterfalls, and grand vistas from exposed mountain summits. You can stand on a summit and capture an image with no discernible human element in the scene.
