Adirondacks, New York, Resource Guides

"View from Noonmark"
by Photographer Carl Heilman

Keene Valley NY .com is the premier online guide to Keene Valley and the High Peaks in Upstate New York showcasing hundreds of exciting attractions throughout the Olympic region and the Adirondacks.
The hamlets of Keene and Keene Valley are known as the "Home to the High Peaks" boasting t
he greatest number of peaks in a single location. These mountains rise majestically in the Keene Valley Region making this area a meca for hikers, climbers and other visitors who wish to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Adirondack mountains. There are literally hundreds of trails located in the tiny hamlet of Keene including the trail to the summit of Mt. Marcy, the highest mountain in New York State.

The History of Keene
Keene received its charter on March 19, 1808. It consists of the hamlets of Keene, Keene Valley and St. Huberts. It was formed from portions of Elizabethtown and Jay and until 1848 included all of the land now lying in North Elba, which is now home to Lake Placid, host to two winter Olympic Games.
After the Civil War, a young landscape artist by the name of Perkins settled in the area for two years. His beautiful paintings inspired his colleagues to travel to the Adirondacks to see what he had seen. As this local population of artists expanded, the Keene Valley Region became a popular retreat for writers and artists. Today, Keene is home to many respected authors and artists who find inspiration in the natural beauty of the High Peaks.
