Foliage Report


Malone's scenic fall foliage views are the best way to capture autumn in Northern NY.

Let us be your sightseeing base camp as you tour through our beautiful region  -- an area that becomes even more vibrant during this breathtaking time of year. 

Pack your suitcase and bring your crew to visit us and stay in one of our great lodging properties. Start your day off right -- stay in a warm and comfortable bed, enjoy breakfast and a freshly brewed cup of coffee, then head out on your hunt for colorful views. Choose to  hike up a mountain, paddle on the lake, or drive our winding backroads to find just the right photograph, then take time to kick back and relax in the pool or spa to rejuvenate for new adventures the next day.

Head to higher ground

Coming earlier in the season? Not a problem. Plan a day trip to head to the higher elevations of our beautiful area - colors change faster in the mountains and the northern foothills of the Adirondacks make for great sights no matter the season. Nestled between them are some beautifully placed lakes and ponds that add a special touch to the colors that blanket the rolling hills.

Park it at the park

Coming later in the season? Even better! Malone is great for late-fall colors. Enjoy a stroll through one of our many parks that are located near some of the best dining around. Gaze at the colors, shop our local stores, and don't forget to try our tasty regional cuisine!
