Corinth, noted as "the snowshoe capital of the world," is located on the northeast border of the Saratoga County on the banks of the Hudson River in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The surrounding lakes, streams, and woodlands provide beauty at every turn. Residents enjoy the serenity of Corinth, while still being only 15 minutes away from all the faster-paced attractions and entertainment offered in the neighboring communities of Saratoga Springs and Lake George.
The east town line, formed by the Hudson River, is the border of Warren County. The western part of Corinth is in the Adirondack Park. Palmer Falls on the Hudson River is located in the town. This was formerly known as "Kah-che-bon-cook", "Hadley Falls", "The Great Falls of the Hudson", or "Palmer's Great Falls". The falls are now named after Beriah Palmer, who at one time owned land along both sides of the river at this point.
New York State Route 9N is a north-south highway. The Saratoga and North Creek Railway stops in Corinth once daily northbound and southbound on Saturday and Sunday in May and June, and Friday through Tuesday in July through October.
