Favorite cycling around Saranac Lake
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.
