The Town of Johnsburg, the largest in Warren County, is a sensational four-season destination, which consists of seven hamlets, each boasting a variety of venues and events for all ages to enjoy. Take a ride into history and enjoy a scenic view of the winding Hudson River aboard the Saratoga & North Creek Railway. Then go back in time with a visit the historic North Creek Depot Museum. Enjoy a leisurely tour of garnet mines located at the famous Barton Mines in North River. If running is more your speed, sign up to participate in our annual Race the Train event, an 8.4 mile foot race that traverses the shaded River Road parallel to the Hudson River. Relax and take in the melodious strumming of the Annual Bluegrass Festival in historic Ski Bowl Park, which takes place in August. The region provides miles and miles of hiking trails for various levels of ability. Take in the spectacular fall foliage with a scenic ride on the Northwoods Gondola at Gore Mountain Ski Center. In winter, a return trip to tackle excellent downhill slopes at this premier destination is a must. Downhill not your thing? No problem. Try out the cross-country trails at Gore or travel down off the mountain for other outstanding cross-country ventures at Cunningham’s Ski Barn and Garnet Hill Ski Resort. Garnet Hill is rated as a top 10 resort in the U.S., and also offers Mountain Biking in the summer. Don’t forget that the Northeast’s best whitewater rafting is located in our area. Johnsburg is home to several companies that will give you the ride of your life. This thrill can be experienced all summer long, but is a special delight in spring when the water is high. Speaking of whitewater, the Town of Johnsburg held it’s 50th White Water Derby in the spring of 2007. Boating, golfing, amusement parks, and shopping malls are never too far away. We’ve just celebrated or 200th anniversary and look forward to sharing 200 more with you.
