The Great Outdoors
Potsdam students and faculty ran into each other while hiking Bear Mountain with friends and family in the Adirondack Park during a beautiful Columbus Day Weekend.
"You can't get a bigger or better playground than the Adirondack State Park."
-SUNY Potsdam Music Business major, Jared Brickman
And let's face it, do we ever truly lose our desire to go to the playground?
Potsdam is nestled in the scenic North Country and within this region, we are fortunate to have the sprawling and picturesque Adirondack Park located a mere 15 minutes away.
The Adirondack Park offers visitors:
- 6 million acres worth of an all-nature "playground" complete with mountain summits, forest glades and hidden waterfalls
- 46 high peaks complete with spectacular fall foliage
- free access to more than 2,000 miles worth of hiking trails
- 100 campgrounds and many four-star resorts including rustic lodges and log cabins
- artisans whose crafts are steeped in the Adirondack culture and way of life
- a complete mixture of seasonal sporting opportunities-from skiing and sledding to fishing and mountain climbing
