Summer Recreation

Mirror Lake is a spectacular natural wonder to take in during a visit to Lake Placid year-round, so naturally, playing on Mirror Lake is heralded by guests as a must during a stay at High Peaks Resort. In the summer, use our complimentary paddling equipment, including kayaks, rowboats, stand up paddleboards and paddleboats to glide along its calm surface as the sun comes up, or paddle off into the sunset after a day of Adirondack adventures. Stay in the Waterfront Collection and step right outside onto the lake, or enjoy the view from your private balcony.

*Please Note: Due to safety concerns, our boats and SUPs are only available for use if the water temperature in Mirror Lake is above 60 degrees. Therefore, our water equipment is typically available from mid-June to Columbus Day weekend. Please contact us or see the front desk with any questions regarding availability.*

Winter Recreation

Traversing the two-mile Mirror Lake Skating loop on ice skates makes for a great way to stay warm on a chilly winter's day. If you'd like to venture even further from town, Cascade Cross Country Ski Center boasts beautifully groomed, wooded snowshoe and cross-country ski trails. Access to the trails is included with your reservation and snowshoes can be borrowed from the High Peaks Resort Guest Services desk.

However you make our High Peaks your own, you're sure to warm up in front of a crackling fire with a hot chocolate or a Hot Toddy at Dancing Bears Restaurant.
