Chester Challenge

Begin your road trip by heading up to Chestertown for an early morning hike! Choose a trail from the Chester Challenge and get on your way. The trails range from steep hikes to walks in the woods, and they each provide scenic views of the surrounding Adirondack region. Come back to finish all 6 trails in the challenge to get a pin!

After your hike, head into town to order a treat to cool off with from Main Street Ice Cream Parlor. You could get an ice cream cone, or try one of their house specialties like the Dirty House Sundae! Did you miss breakfast? Don't worry, their breakfast menu includes: Belgian waffles, eggs benedict, breakfast sandwiches, and more! Before you head out, be sure to check out their store and browse all of their unique items.

Continue on to your next stop, which is the beautiful Brant Lake. If you're feeling up for another short hike, you can try Bartonville Mountain. At the top you'll see a gorgeous view of Brant Lake and the surrounding Adirondack Mountains. If you brought your bike you can also try the Three Lakes Ride! It's a 33.2 mile scenic bike ride around Friends Lake, Brant Lake, and Loon Lake.

Did you work up an appetite? You can grab a bite at The Hub where they have menu items such as pizza on naan flatbread, soups, salads, specialty sandwiches and more. Take your food to go and walk right over to Brant Lake Beach for a picnic! It's a great place to swim, or just relax after a busy day.
