    Just hours away from the major metropolitan centers of the Northeast, Fourpeaks is in the High Peaks, the heart of New York's 6-million acre Adirondack Park--the largest controlled use recreation area in the East. At the center of a scenic triangle with Whiteface Mountain (Wilmington, 6 miles), the Jay Wilderness (Jay Mountain, 4 miles) and the tallest 4,000-foot plus High Peaks (Keene, 10 miles away)--Spectacular Views! By the hamlet of Jay (12941) on the East Branch of the AuSable River. 6 miles from Whiteface Ski Area. 17 miles from Lake Placid Olympic Center. [There are no maps that shows Fourpeaks.

    New York State Trails. Thanks to Adirondack Mountain Club popularizing and irresponsible commercialism by the Lake Placid hotel/motel/restaurant operating business community, the New York State public lands in the Lake Placid-Keene Valley area are dangerously overused. Trails are eroded, sometimes many feet below the normal grade, overly wide, littered and devoid of a natural appearance. They are so crowded in season that forays into these overly popular state owned lands no longer bear any resemblance to a wilderness hiking experience. (A full parking lot at the trailhead, hundreds of tourists on the trails, and a crowd at the summit view. Is this wilderness?) The New York State Department of Conservation has spearheaded new usage regulations and urges vacationers to find less crowded places for recreational hiking. [CLICK HERE for a link to more on this subject from Greg Smith, nature photographer, including a summary, comments and the full text of the April 1, 2000 HIGH PEAKS UNIT MANAGEMENT PLAN (New York State DEC).]

    Private lands like those at Fourpeaks are one alternative to overcrowded public lands in the High Peaks. Perfect for recreational hiking (from short walks anyone can easily manage to moderate 2-5 mile day hikes), we urge our guests to get out and explore. Fourpeaks is bordered by four 2,000-foot peaks, with exciting mountain views. 700 acres of accessible wilderness, field, forest and stream, with no crowds or wornout trails. No driving to get there, either. Guests can just step out of their door for a short walk or an all day expedition on our private mountain valley.
    Want more? There are other uncrowded places for hiking on private lands in the vast, almost unused, nearby Jay Wilderness. Also, State lands at Hurricane Mountain and Slide Brook on the road to Elizabethtown are far enough away from the Lake Placid-Keene Valley hotspots to attract fewer folks. Ask and we'll help you find them.
