Multigenerational Family Mountain Vacation Ideas
The Finger Lakes region offers a good selection of biking trails for mountain biking. For a deep woodland feel, head to Harriet Hollister Spencer Recreation Area. Most of the trails follow old forest roads or make loops, so you have plenty of nature-filled sights to see. You can also try cross-country skiing there in the winter!
Another fun activity for your family vacation is horseback riding! Painted Bar Stables offers year-round guided trail rides and lessons. They aim to take small, intimate groups of three to four riders but can take up to 15 depending on New York’s COVID-19 guidelines.
The Finger Lakes consist of several long lakes, so there’s bound to be plenty of water activities that families can enjoy. Your extended family can choose to go swimming, boating, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, fly fishing, water skiing, and much more! Plus, there are many options of lakes to choose from.
