Their team has made sure that everything is in place to help you safely navigate the course of climbing walls, suspended cable bridges, rope swings, and nets and end the aerial adventure gliding through the fresh air and trees while keeping social distancing guidelines in place.

Or take a scenic drive through the Adirondack Mountains to Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, home of the largest marble cave entrance in the east! Grab a walking stick and make your way along the leisurely ¾ mile trail to the caves, pop geodes in the mineral shop, mine for gemstones, or make your own jewelry.

This natural playground also offers plenty of open space for a picnic lunch for the whole family or stop by the ice cream shop for a special treat after an afternoon exploring the great outdoors.

Throw in the many miles of hiking and biking trails, parks and beaches surrounding the “Queen of American Lakes” and you have the perfect destination all wrapped up in a natural setting the entire family can safely enjoy.
