Inlet is a hiker’s paradise.  The West Central Adirondacks boasts many miles of varied trails, ranging from short and easy, to all day climbs, bog hikes on floating boardwalks, and short strolls amid centuries old White Pines.  An avid hiker could find enough trails and hikes within a few miles of downtown Inlet to fill up months of explorations.  It is best to plan all hikes based on your ability and to let others know of your trip.  Day packs and dress should be appropriate for the hike chosen.
