The 2024 Total Solar Eclipse in the Adirondacks

Posted in Spring at Garnet Hill, Things to Do

On April 8, 2024, the Adirondack region will be on the path of totality for one of nature’s greatest spectacles – a total solar eclipse. This once-in-a-lifetime eclipse will block out the sun and plunge the region into complete darkness. This extremely rare event is one that you will not want to miss. In fact, total solar eclipses only happen on the same place on earth about once every 400 years! 

Read on to find out how you can experience this once-in-a-lifetime eclipse with us at our Lodge.
