Paradox Lake New York Laser Engraved Map

Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.)Birch is our wood of preference.

This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Paradox Lake in the Adirondack Mountains in eastern upstate New York with the following interesting stats carved into it:

  • Located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains
  • 896 Surface Acres
  • 5 Miles Long
  • 1 Mile Wide
  • Average Depth: 19 Feet
  • Maximum Depth: 55 Feet
  • Paradox Lake gets its name from a unique occurrence which
    happens every spring. Melting snow in the eastern Adirondack
    Mountains flows into Schroon River. Paradox Lake’s outlet
    also flows into the Schroon River but due to the sudden
    increase in water, the outflow is forced back, causing it to flow
    in reverse.

Interesting Factoid About the Lake:-

Paradox Lake gets its name from a unique occurrence which happens every spring. Melting snow in the eastern Adirondack Mountains flows into Schroon River. Paradox Lake's outlet also flows into Schroon River, but due to the sudden increase in water, the outflow is forced back, causing it to flow in reverse. The word paradox, so the locals claim, means "water running backward" in Indian.

Paradox Lake is an 896-acre lake located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in eastern upstate New York. Almost 5 miles long, and one mile wide, the lake averages 19 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 55 feet. Due to its proximity to Lake George, Lake Champlain, and Schroon Lake, Paradox Lake has become a popular destination for those seeking a bit quieter and less crowded vacation destination.

Paradox Lake is best known for its spectacular hiking trials. The Paradox/Schroon Lake Region is considered one of the most scenic sections of the Adirondacks characterized by rolling hills, numerous lakes and ponds and large sections of untouched forests. A network of trails south of Paradox Lake offer access to this beautiful wilderness plus a chance to climb to the top of Pharaoh Mountain. The view from the summit of Pharaoh Mountain is quite spectacular at an elevation of 2,557 feet. On the opposite shore of the lake, accessible only by boat, a 2.2 mile trail leads to Peaked Hill and Peaked Hill Pond. Peaked Hill provides some stunning views of the surrounding area and Peaked Hill Pond is rumored to hold some fine smallmouth bass and yellow perch.
