Favorite cycling around Saranac Lake

  • For a scenic challenge, a local favorite is the Franklin Falls loop, tour the heart of the Adirondacks, this route 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  (local’s 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, ready to be explored.

  • Another top pick is the scenic Bloomingdale Bog - ride along an abandoned railroad on 10.5 miles of sand, dirt and gravel trails.
