Mountain biking in Lake Placid improves every year. Knobby-tire and fat biking enthusiasts will find so much terrain — everything from the rolling terrain of the Pine Pond trail to the feature-studded singletrack of the Lussi trail network — they'll have to come back to ride it all.
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 are on sale at local shops. The group also created 3-miles of trails at Craig Wood Golf Course that are 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 excursion, there is something to get your wheels spinning in Lake Placid.
