Best Swim Dock in the Adirondacks!
On vacation and won’t be here the whole summer, not a problem! Flexible lessons for a week at a time will be available if you come and go throughout the summer season. Everyone welcome to participate.
A friendly reminder, there are no life-jackets allowed on the beach or in the water to swim. If you want to swim to the dock, the lifeguards will assess your strength as a swimmer. If you pass, yahoo, you can go to the dock. If you don’t, don’t give up. Show the guards you are working hard and build up your swimming prowess and before you know it you’ll have permission to be jumping off the minitrampoline.
Long Lake’s Swim Dock boasts rope swings, a slide, mini trampoline and hours of beach entertainment. Come on by for the day and stay for the week! Best view in the Adirondacks.
All lifeguards are Red ... Read more

Some bikers, like me, are looking for back roads, no traffic. Winding, up-and-down dirt roads where the pickups don’t come flying by at 65 miles per hour. Not the single-track obstacle courses favored by many of the devotees of mountain bikes, but hard-packed dirt roads, where two people can ride side by side, talk about the scenery, get some good exercise, and not worry about either speed records or motorized traffic.
There’s an ideal place for this sort of biking in the Town of Newcomb, in the Essex Chain Lakes Complex recently bought by the state and opened to the public in 2015. I took my fat-tire bike there one sunny day late last August, got to see some new territory, and worked up a serious sweat.
I drove in to the Deer Pond parking area, unloaded my bike, and set off, heading east. It’s rolling and occasionally steep, right from the start. (The roads in there are a little confusing and not yet well marked, so before you go, download this map from the DEC.)

So many access points and tons of sales. Plan your route for the #adkgaragesale
We started with 115 garage sales on the map and last night 9 more were added by 9pm. Definitely stay plugged into the great interactive website We’ve posted many of the local garage sale maps, but we don’t have all of them on here, so make sure you click on this link to get the best info for your location. Old Forge is a great starting point as it boasts a record number of garage sales for 2016, but keep on driving because we have garage sales all the way north, up to Malone, west to Newcomb and along routes 3, 28, and 30! www.greatadirondackgaragesale.com
In Long Lake maps are available at the Long Lake Town Offices – we do have limited printed maps of our neighboring communities. Local Maps are also available at our local businesses, don’t see one? Please ask. We also have local maps at all the area garage sales, but if you are looking for the next community to drive to
