The busy streets of the Big Apple may offer their own kind of adventure—glamorous stores, world-class museums and celebrity sightings. But it’s further upstate where real adventure takes place. From hiking and biking to skiing and fishing, New York offers a host of activities to meet almost any interest. 

Bear Mountain State Park 
Located a stone’s throw from New York City, Bear Mountain State Park proves the perfect escape from the urban jungle. Travelers can hike, bike, cross-country ski and camp at this scenic range with relatively easy—but incredibly beautiful—trails. 

Catskill Scenic Trail 
Winter sports enthusiasts love the well-kept snowmobile trails at this picturesque park located in Stamford. The 19 miles of easy hiking and biking trails draw travelers in search of fall foliage in cooler months, but it’s only when the temperatures drop and snow starts to fall that Catskill Scenic Trail heats up. 

Holiday Valley Sky High Adventure Park 
From May through October this high ropes course with wobbly bridges and sky-high platforms located in Ellicottville attracts fearless travelers looking to explore new heights. 

Salmon River 
This 17-mile river located in Oswego Country is home to 12 miles of public fishing land that draws outdoor enthusiasts to its shores year-round. Anglers can cast their lines into the river, where the world’s largest Coho salmon was caught, in hopes of securing a new world record. 

Olympic Sports Complex 
Lake Placid, two-time home of the Winter Olympic Games, is the perfect place for adventurous travelers to attempt incredible feats. From luge rides and bobsledding to mile-high ski jumps and cross-country trails, travelers are sure to get their adrenaline fix here.
