Lake Placid and High Peaks Region
A wide range of year round recreation, natural wonders and tourist stops await you in the Lake Placid and High Peaks Region. The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) operates several venues including Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington for alpine skiing and mountain biking, Mt. Van Hoevenberg for cross-country skiing and the bobsled run and the Olympic arena for skating and hockey. You can also visit the Olympic ski jumping complex. Young children will love the classic Christmas theme park Santa's Workshop. High Falls Gorge is a spectacular waterfall attraction. If mountain hiking is your thing, the Keene Valley area offers access to many high peaks trail heads and the Au Sable River is highly regarded for its fly fishing. The region also offers "less strenuous" vacation activities, such as fine dining and shopping galore. This region stretches east to Elizabethtown and north to Peasleeville and includes the towns of Au Sable Forks, Black Brook, Clintonville, Elizabethtown, Fern Lake, Hawkeye, Jay, Keene, Keene Valley, Lake Placid, Lewis, New Russia, Peasleeville, Silver Lake, St. Huberts, Upper Jay and Wilmington/Whiteface.
