The mountains are often included by geographers in the Appalachian Mountains,
but they are geologically more similar to the Laurentian Mountains of Canada.
They are bordered on the east by Lake Champlain and Lake George, which separate
them from the Green Mountains in Vermont. They are bordered to the south by the
Mohawk Valley, and to the west by the Tug Hill Plateau, separated by the Black
River. This region is south of the Saint Lawrence River.

The Adirondack Mountains are contained within the 6.1 million acres (25,000 kmē) of the Adirondack Park, which includes a constitutionally-protected Forest Preserve of approximately 2.3 million acres (9,300 kmē). About 43% of the land is owned by the state, with 57% private inholdings, heavily regulated by the Adirondack Park Agency. The Adirondack Park contains thousands of streams, brooks and lakes, most famously Lake Placid, adjacent to the village of Lake Placid, two-time site of the Winter Olympic Games, the Saranac Lakes, favored by the sportsmen who made the Adirondacks famous, and Raquette Lake, site of many of the first Great Camps.
