North Creek

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, in Warren County

North Creek is on the Hudson River and home of the Upper Hudson River Railroad, Gore Mountain Ski Area, and the annual Whitewater Derby.

The Hudson River is the dominant attraction in North Creek. In addition to the spectacular scenery surrounding this community, visit cultural highlights like the Tannery Pond Community Center, where you can enjoy musical presentations and the performing arts. If you're a railway buff,  take a ride on the historic seasonal excursion trains that run along the Hudson River to Riparius. Beautiful views are spectacular, particularly during the fall foliage season.

The North Creek Depot Museum tells the long, colorful history of the area. Within walking distance of the depot, in the village shopping district, you'll find a nice offering of places to eat and shop.

Nearby Gore Mountain offers year round activities and some of the best alpine skiing and snowboarding in the Adirondacks. If you are a nordic or cross-country skier, more than 120 miles of groomed trails are within a 20 mile radius of the community.

The many friendly communities like this one along the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway provide the opportunity for an enjoyable walk, refreshment, and to learn more about the region. The 153-mile Central Adirondack Trail forms the shape of a crescent, originating in the fertile lowland areas surrounding the cities of Glens Falls and Rome, and winding through the south-central portion of the Adirondack Park. The Hudson River on the eastern end and the Erie Canal on the west are the gateways to many scenic lakes and mountain streams that are the distinguishing geographic features along much of this scenic byway.
