Mount Van Hoevenberg, Lake Placid

4.4
#5 of 21 in Outdoors in Lake Placid
Gliding through some of the most beautiful terrain in the east, taking in the towering white pines, crisp, clean air, the calm of the Adirondack woods. That's what cross-country skiing here at the Olympic Sports Complex is about.

The fact that it provides one of the best low-impact, total-body workouts you can find is a bonus. Arms, legs, stomach and back all work in concert without pounding your joints. A day on our impeccably groomed trails will exhaust and replenish you all at once.

We offer lessons—group and private—equipment rentals, a well-stocked sports shop and café. In short, everything you need to enjoy a day on our world-class trails in the Adirondack woods. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Lake Placid using our trip planner.

  • We did several moderate hikes during our Lake Placid vacation, and this was my favorite. We are a middle aged couple from a flat and rockless area, so mountains are always fun but challenging for me.....  more »
  • Great place to cross-country ski during the winter. Nice selection of trails for all abilities. Well groomed with some artificial snow for those warmer days. A little pricy but still worth it.  more »

  • nice hike
  • Nice easy hike. The beavers' lake was gorgeous. Unfortunately we were covered by clouds, but the views were still great. Easy for family hikes. We had 5 y.o. with us.
