Adirondack Fall Foliage: Vibrant, Inviting, Picturesque

We’re within a few weeks of autumn’s official “peak” here at Garnet Hill Lodge, an idyllic fall-inspired Adirondack getaway destination. A couple of days ago, we shared a 36-hour fall itinerary complete with a bevy of outdoor pursuits, including hiking, fishing, and paddling. Today, we’re going to provide 10 Kayakers in the fallunique ways to experience the always jaw-dropping Adirondack fall foliage. Because Garnet Hill boasts 700 acres of private, densely-thicketed forestry in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, you’ll never be more than a few steps away from a full-day of leaf-peeping. Thus, make sure to bring a high-tech digital camera, plenty of outerwear, and a healthy appetite for adventure!

 10 Ways to Relish the Sprawling Adirondack Fall Foliage

Upstate New York, chiefly the Adirondack Mountains, remains one of North America’s most desirable destinations for self-proclaimed autumnophiles. The sheer, seemingly endless acreage fosters everything from adventure and exploration to relaxation. Guests at Garnet Hill Lodge will not have to wander off-site to enjoy the most vibrant Adirondack fall foliage. However, feel free to hop into the car en route to nowhere in particular. All you need is a car, a map, and years of intuition. As summer fades and autumn approaches, the lush forestry transforms into an eye-popping blend of colors, including amber, marigold, crimson, and kelly green. It’s a kaleidoscope of color that has the unique ability to stop people in their tracks.

  1. Hike through the backcountry, en route to Peaked Mountain, Wolf Pond, or the Balm of Gilead.
  2. Find a new meaning to the word “tranquility” via a fly fishing excursion. Guided fishing trips are also available.
  3. Canoe (or kayak) on serene Thirteenth Lake, a hidden, 329-acre marvel within walking distance of the Outdoor Center.
  4. Last chance for whitewater rafting!
  5. Pedal through some of the most spellbinding singletrack in Upstate New York.
  6. Sip on a malty, festive Oktoberfest lager at a local craft brewery.
  7. Picnic underneath falling leaves.
  8. Craft a pumpkin-spiced latte (or cocktail) in your mountain-view guest room.
  9. Become an Instagram star by capturing the valley’s various color combinations.
  10. Hop into the car and embark on a classic fall drive around the Siamese Ponds Wilderness’ perimeter. Remember to piece together the perfect autumnal playlist with tracks from Sea Wolf, Bon Iver, Lord Huron, Iron & Wine, and S. Carey.
