With millions of acres of protected wilderness and more than 2,000 miles of hiking and biking trails, New York State is a nature lover's paradise. In fact, Adirondack Park, with more than 6.2 million acres, is the largest park outside of Alaska.
Across the state, you'll discover beautiful natural lands and bountiful views, like The Gorges in the sprawling Finger Lakes region. But nature's poetry doesn't stop there. Try birdwatching while traveling through a wildlife refuge like the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, or picnicking in a nature preserve. Take a foliage tour along the ponds of Allegany State Park or view the scenic vistas found from the top of a mountain. Try exploring the grottos of a billion-year-old cave at Natural Stone Bridge. If you're looking for Mother Nature, look no further-it obvious she loves New York!
