884 NYS ROUTE 86
PO BOX 309


From Albany:

Northway (I-87) North to exit 30 (Olympic Village).

Exit 30: Turn left onto Rt. 73. (Travel time from this point to Saranac Lake - 1 hour.)

Watch for signs to Lake placid and Saranac Lake - You will pass thru Underwood, Keene Valley, and Keene.

On the outskirts of Lake Placid you will pass the ski-jump (on your left) and the horse show grounds (on the right.)

Just as you pass the horse show grounds, Rt. 73 curves to the right. Do not curve around the horse show grounds – go straight; bear left on Old Military Rd. This is a secondary road around the back of Lake Placid. You will pass the cemetery, Olympic Village Olympic Training Center and the fire house (all on the right). 

You will come to a stop sign at a "T" intersection. Turn left onto Rt. 86 and follow into Saranac Lake.

Continue on Rt. 86 for several miles.

The speed changes as you enter Ray Brook. There will be a golf course on your left. You will pass the APA, DEC and State Police buildings all on the right.

One mile from the State Police building, but on the left side of the road, is the Post Office. Our new office is just beyond the Post Office.

At the bottom of the hill turn left onto Ray Brook Road aka County Rt. #32. Our office is the first left. Parking is in the rear of the building.

When in Keene, just past Stewarts, stay to the left on 73 and don’t bear right on Rt 9N (the Elm Tree Inn is at the split).
