Sit back, relax, and ride!

In the Adirondacks and the Lake Placid area in particular, hiking is a beautiful, fulfilling activity that many people enjoy. Because this is a popular activity, especially on weekends and when fall color brightens the skies, parking lots at and near trailheads can fill up quickly. To help mitigate the crush, and remove stress from everyone, take the hiker shuttle! Two shuttle routes offer easy access to some of the most popular and adventurous hikes in the High Peaks.
