There are so many ways to get outside in Schenectady!

Challenge yourself on one of the 6 exciting adventure courses, or relax and fly through the trees on their 9 zip lines, criss-crossing over a 500' long gorge! A perfect, and unique way to enjoy nature with a dash of adventure! 

A Few of Our Favorite Things...

No matter the weather, getting out for a walk, a run or a hike is a great way to #DiscoverSchenectady. Here are a few of our favorite places to hit the pavement...or the trail! 

Did You Know!? 

We even have ways to enjoy the snow!? Check out Maple Ski Ridge year-round for events and gorgeous views, but we especially love ski season! Varied trails offer skiers at all levels a good time! Not into skiing? Tubing is a great time for the whole family!
