“A real trail for wheelchairs! Beautiful!”
Review of John Dillon Park

John Dillon Park
Ranked #4 of 13 things to do in Long Lake
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 July 2013

We loved the trails! Real trails for power wheelchairs! The longer trail (a few miles) was wonderful, not just a puny 1/4 mile paved trail. Surface: smooth crushed gravel. Ended at a small beach. However, the road to the trail desperately needs work. Our lowered floor van hit bottom many times, even with great care in driving.

Rough road getting there, but peaceful and quiet and very easy walking trails. If you want a fairly primitive place to camp that's away from it all (noise, etc.) this would be the place!

You will love the informative, laid back folks from Paul Smith's College who guide your way in this disabilities-friendly environment. Whether you are camping in the lean-tos with chopped wood waiting for your supper fire, or hiking on the wide gravel trails back in to Handsome Pond (5 miles round trip) or cruising Grampus Lake on the silent electric party boat with their provided binoculars, you will find yourself immersed in the heart of the ADK. Donations happily accepted; make a reservation if you are planning to camp. Bring bug spray and/or netting. Great for all ages!
