Garnet Hill Lodge

 
Enjoy an adventure on miles and miles of ski and hiking trails at Garnet Hill Lodge. Located within the Adirondack Mountains overlooking Thirteenth Lake, the lodge provides outdoor fun and team building all year round. During the winter, groups can participate in nordic skiing and snowshoeing on over 55k of on-site trails, backcountry skiing on forest trails, or alpine skiing at Gore Mountain. Summertime fun at Garnet Hill Lodge includes swimming in the lake, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, and more. Special activities include guided ski and snowshoe tours in winter, and guided hikes and canoe trips in summer. Stay overnight in the Log House or 2 annex buildings. Equipment rentals are available. The Adirondack park is known for its amazing forests, wildlife, lakes, rivers and mountains, but this land and the communities within it have also been changed by man, the railroads, mining, and logging. Compliment this experiential learning in the great outdoors with a trip to the nearby North Creek Depot Museum, the Adirondack Experience Museum, or the Wild Center.
