If you like history or are a fan of the famed abolishonist, John Brown (yes, the guy who raided a federal weapons armory in Harpers Ferry) then why not stope here for an hour or so if you're near Lake Placid.
It's located right near the ski jumps. John Brown is buried here. After he was hanged in WV, his wife brought his body, along with the bodies of 2 of his sons who died in the raid, home to the homestead.
There is so e interpretive signage, a short video about the Underground Railroad, and the residence that still contains a few period pieces- those that they didn't take to California with them. There is a park ranger type guy who can answer questions for you. Oh, and it's $2.00 dollars per person to bok side the house. Considering you can't get a cupof coffee in Lake Placid for $2.00, it's not a steep donation.
There are a number of mostly flat traits around the 250 some acre farm. They're all kinda flat and range deform less that a mile to maybe 3 miles in length. You won't find another flat trails in the Adirondack region!
Anyway, it's a nice little diversion if you're up that way.
