Jackrabbit Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Jackrabbit Trail (JRT), one of the most popular ski/snowshoe trails in the north country, is 25 miles long, linking the Village of Keene at its western end with the northern village of Saranac Lake in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains. The JRT was conceived and constructed by members of the nonprofit Adirondack Ski Touring Council (ASTC) beginning in 1986. This unique trail includes a section that takes skiers through the main street of Lake Placid, the famed Olympic Village. You may see winter athletes who train and compete here in Olympic sports. Surface quality: Ungroomed, skier tracked."
