Things to Do
Newcomb offers unlimited opportunities for a variety of activities. During each season, recreational and educational options are here for your enjoyment. In autumn, the fall foliage of red, yellow and orange will enliven every Adirondack experience. In winter, Newcomb’s reliable snow cover and its network of roads and trails provide for excellent snowmobiling, cross country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and skating. During warmer seasons, you can enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, hunting, and fishing.
Hiking, biking, exploring—in Newcomb you can climb high and low-peak mountains and fire towers, visit the old village of Adirondac at the Upper Works, or walk through history at the restored Great Camp Santanoni.
Newcomb also has a number of public lakes and ponds, now including recently expanded access to the Hudson River and the Essex Chain of Lakes. The town beach at Lake Harris, with its family-friendly facilities, makes for a memorable day at the lake.
If you enjoy golf, you will love the amazing views and challenging layout at High Peaks Golf Course.
