The Olympic Trail travels East and West for 170 miles from Lake Champlain to Lake Ontario while passing through the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park in Northern New York.

The Olympic Scenic Byway makes it easy for visitors to escape hectic,stressful lifestyles. Like past generations of vacationers and health seekers, travelers are rejuvenated by the region’s clean pure air, and pristine, deeply forested hills and mountains. Outdoor enthusiasts revitalize in exhilarating four-season land and water sports at authentic Olympic-quality locations.

Touring the byway brings visitors to hamlets, villages, and towns to discover one-of-a-kind hidden treasures for dining, shopping, and exploring. At community gathering places and events, travelers build new friendships and life-long memories. Visitors are inspired by the determination of today’s and yesterday’s residents to succeed, with Olympic-like spirits, in the diverse, often-challenging environments of the Adirondack Mountains and gateway communities.
