A Message to Our Gore Region Community

In a time when we are all trying our best to remain socially distant, we find ourselves turning to the great outdoors. The Gore Region is home to an abundant resource of trails, mountains, lakes, and streams on which we can explore.

While we still encourage you to get outside and take in the fresh air, we need to change the way in which we do so. Based on the advice from sources such as the CDC, WHO, and New York Governor’s office, we implore you to recreate locally and remain a safe social distance from anyone else who may be enjoying the outdoors.

We regret that we cannot offer you the full breadth of our outdoor recreation at this time, but the Ski Bowl trails are open, including the Carol Thomas trails with a route along the Riverfront Park area. It’s perfect for locals. For those with furry family, the North Creek/Johnsburg Dog Park, located at 88 Ski Bowl Road, remains open!

Please participate in local, low-risk and solo outdoor recreation until our officials let us know otherwise. If you are currently a Gore Region local, feel free to utilize our trails, avoid crowded parking lots, respect other hikers, dog-walkers, and families, and keep your distance from one another.

Remember, the weather fluctuates this time of year so it’s important to be aware of trail conditions to minimize risk.

We welcome you to share your experiences with us on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #HikeGoreRegion and #stayandplayadk. We will make it through these tough times together as a community and we’ll be out enjoying the Gore Region to its fullest before we know it!

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community safe.
