The Adirondack region is beautiful year-round. With the many hiking trails throughout, anyone can enjoy the natural surroundings. Spring, summer, fall and winter – going for a hike in the Adirondacks will help you connect with the flora and fauna of our gorgeous mountains. Whether you enjoy seeing the vast array of birds that make their home in the deciduous forests, catching a glimpse of wildlife in its natural habitat, or basking in the beauty that is the changing leaves of autumn – taking a hike in the Adirondacks is always a wonderful adventure.
When you visit the Adirondacks for a hike, you’ll find many trails in the Speculator region. From easier hikes such as the Moffit’s Beach trail, to the more intense Pillsbury Mountain trail, there is Adirondack hiking for all in and around Speculator.
