Lake Placid mountain and fat tire biking
Mountain biking in Lake Placid improves every year. Knobby-tire and fat biking enthusiasts will find so much terrain — everything from rolling backcountry dirt roads to singletrack to downhill-specific trails — they'll have to come back to ride it all. The neighboring Whiteface Region also boasts a series of incredible trail networks on and around its central hub of Whiteface Mountain, which is home to downhill mountain biking in the summer.
New and notable trails
Perhaps the most notable thing about mountain biking in the Adirondacks is the sport's growth over the past few years. To complement that growth, hardworking volunteers with the Barkeater Trails Alliance created a series of must-have trail maps for the region, which is on sale at local shops. The group also completed a 3-mile section of trail at Craig Wood Golf Course that is sure to be the highlight of any rider’s trip to the area.
Whether you are looking for a quick bike ride right from your Lake Placid hotel room or an all-day fat-tire excursion, there is something to get your wheels spinning in Lake Placid.
