The trails at Craig Wood have been made possible by a partnership between the Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA) and the town of North Elba. Construction of a smooth, fast, and “flow-y” section of trail began in the summer of 2012 and is still ongoing.
Currently the only access is via River Road. Riders can follow River Road to Birdsong Lane, and then hop on the Jackrabbit Trail toward Craig Wood Golf Course. Right before the golf course the singletrack begins on the left hand side. There are plans to gain access to the trails directly from Craig Wood Golf Course in the future. Maps are available at local bike shops.
Parking: Riders may use the pull-off on River Road, at the Steel Deck Bridge. Follow Jackrabbit Trail signs toward the Red Barn to find Birdsong Way.
Craig Wood is just one of many mountain biking areas near Lake Placid.
