Biking in the Saranac Lake Area
Routes and Trails

Cycling around Saranac Lake

Here in Saranac Lake, we road bike, mountain bike, and tandem bike – choose your riding style and we’ve got biking locations for you. Short, long, scenic, and challenging, Saranac Lake offers a range of terrain. We are known for our scenic lakeside routes, Adirondack mountain loops, and freeride dirt trails.

  • For a scenic challenge, a local favorite is the Franklin Falls loop. Tour the heart of the Adirondacks on this route as it takes you through Wilmington/Whiteface and Lake Placid.

  • Treat yourself with the Bloomingdale, Onchiota, and Gabriels loop and enjoy a ride to Donnelly’s Corner for ice cream — it's a local favorite!

  • If panoramic views are on your list, plan a ride along Norman Ridge Road.

If your bike is made for dirt

  • Fun for the entire family, we suggest heading to Mt. Pisgah, with their recently added mountain bike trail center.

  • Dewey Mountain is also a top pick with 5.5 miles of trails, all ready to be explored.

  • A more casual — but no less scenic — pick is Bloomingdale Bog. Ride along an abandoned railroad corridor on 10.5 miles of sand, dirt, and gravel trails. It's all level and easy to follow.
