The Mirror Lake Ice Walk in Lake Placid, New York is an easy 0.6-mile out-and-back (or much longer) walk across the frozen lake, only during winter months.

Walk Description
This is not a hike, but rather a walk across the frozen Mirror Lake during the Winter. A massive loop trail, during 2023 was plowed across the lake, giving walkers the ability to get exercise and take in the views of Lake Placid from the frozen waters of Mirror Lake. During the Winter you can walk this as far as you want.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
