Warren County

Central Adirondack Trail

Glens Falls, Lake George Village, North Creek and Warrensburg are in scenic Warren County, including picturesque Lake George and the Hudson River.

Warren County in northern New York includes the magnificent Lake George area and the cultural hub of the City of Glens Falls. With more than 20 beautiful lakes, countless outdoor activities and dozens of exciting attractions, the Lake George area offers the perfect opportunity to experience everything from outdoor adventure to peaceful solitude in the Southern Adirondack Mountains. Cooper’s Cave in Glens Falls is a major site first made well known in James Fenimore Cooper’s novel, The Last of the Mohicans. The Hyde Museum, a world renowned museum in Glens Falls, has works from da Vinci, Degas, Renoir, Cezanne, van Gogh, and Picasso. The Barton Garnet Mine in North Creek is one of the largest concentrations of garnet in North America. The many friendly communities in Counties like this one along the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway provide the opportunity for an enjoyable walk, refreshment, and to learn more about the area. 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.
