Warrensburg

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28 and U.S. Highway 9, in Warren County

Historic Warrensburg is a traditional gateway to the Adirondacks, near the Hudson River, the Schroon River, and scenic Lake George.

The world's largest garage sale is held annually in this community in early October. Throughout the rest of the year lots of events and activities will interest car buffs, antique buyers, and folks who enjoy the outdoors.

Hiking, river rafting on the Hudson and Sacandaga Rivers is nearby. Spelunking in the caves in nearby Pottersville will be fun for budding geologists. Paddling and fishing the Schroon is another outdoor pursuit. Skiing is not far away at Gore Mountain.

Boat lovers will enjoy the annual Antique and Classic Boat show in August. The hot air balloon festival in September is another special reason to visit this community and see the stately post-Colonial and Victorian homes found on tree lined streets.

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.
