Spring has certainly sprung. If you want to get away for Easter with the family, are a student on Spring Break or belong to a fishing or hiking club…. find adventure or experience the quiet solitude of the Adirondack State Park, Blue Mt Lake is the perfect venue.
But while you are there go to explore- hike, bike, fish or go white water rafting.
Blue Mt is one of the highest peaks in the Adirondacks just under 3,800 feet, fantastic for hiking or mountain biking. The New York State trails are everywhere, leading to you moderate trails for novices or steep terrain for the truly experienced.
Go Fishing. It’s trout season and less than 15 minutes from your lodging facility are 7 lakes. Blue Mt Lake, Eagle, Durant, Indian, Adirondack, Long & Raquette Lakes stock a colorful variety of species of fish including: small and large mouth bass, land locked salmon, northern pike, brook, brown and lake trout, bullhead, pumpkin seed, smelt, red breast sunfish, whitefish, yellow perch – ideal for any angler, family outing or just a peaceful jaunt on the water.
If you want a little more action try whitewater rafting. Exhilarating white water will cruise you past scenic gorges, blue iced mountain faces and pine covered high peaks. – tiz the season for these effervescent flows, the winter melt off is happening right now and will continue into lake spring and summer. There are three rafting companies in Indian Lake where you can sign up for a ride of a lifetime especally if you grab a raft on a level 4-6 rapid. Students on spring break get special perks on this one because your anticipation and enthusiasm is felt right through the hospitality industry.
