The Great Outdoors

The North Country is beautiful in all seasons. You can easily immerse yourself in nature by taking advantage of the many trails that dot our area, some of which are just a short walk from campus… whether you’re into hiking or if mountain biking is more your speed. No matter which path you choose, you’ll experience beautiful views of our rivers and the Adirondack foothills.

Students can sign up to take a day trip or rent outdoor equipment like kayaks and cross-country skis for free through Venture Outdoors. Don’t forget these basic outdoor tips for planning your trip!
