Boonville to Lake Placid + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Start in Boonville NY. Coming either north or south on RT. 12, you will turn off onto Moose River Rd. You will take that until it intersects with Rt. 28. Turn Left/North onto Rt. 28. Rt. 28 intersects with Rt. 30, turn left/north onto Rt. 30. Continue on Rt. 30 until it becomes Rt. 3 East. Follow this into Lake Placid. Signs are easy to find, and each road change is miles apart. It's a very low stress drive.
Nothing but mountains, forest and lakes. Gorgeous drive through Adirondack park. Passes the Chain lakes, Eagle Bay, Old Forge, Blue Mountain Lake, Saranac Lake, and Lake Placid among others.
Awesome road with a ton of turns. It's very rare to go straight for more than 1/2 mile or so. Winds up and down and around lakes. The only reason it's not a great on the scale is that pavement quality can be less than perfect since they are mountain roads.
The road goes through a lot of mountain towns, many set up specifically for tourists. Old Forge, Saranac Lake, and Lake Placid are your bigger ones, with restaurants, hotels, shopping, etc. Camping and gas stations are spread throughout the park as well.
