A Local's Guide to Upstate New York

I'm Jackie - an Upstate New York local with a passion for outdoor adventure and exploring off the beaten path.

Upstate New York offers an abundance of natural spaces and outdoor activities to explore. With mountains, lakes and rivers, you can hike through scenic trails, take in picturesque views, paddle on serene waters and see off the beaten path sites.

This guide focuses mainly on the best hiking trails, coolest waterfalls, and unique Airbnbs - with a few of my favorite restaurants and the best NY breweries and vineyards thrown in the mix.

You'll find this guide essential to planning a unique, adventurous, and ultra-memorable trip through Upstate New York in any season. I've explored all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful state and can't wait to share them with you!
