Taberg, New York: Hiking, Skiing, and Country Scenery in the Adirondack Foothills
The small town of Taberg lies in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, less than 50 miles from Syracuse. Thanks to the abundance of natural beauty nearby, Taberg is a popular destination for city dwellers looking to rough it for a while. The area holds the record for most snowfall east of the Rocky Mountains, making the Tug Hill Plateau a favored spot for winter sports, including cross-country and downhill skiing, ice-fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. A less strenuous way to enjoy the scenery is to hop aboard the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, which stops at a station in nearby Utica. You can see forests, frozen ponds, and snow-covered peaks—all from the comfort of a powerful locomotive.
