Mountain Biking in Saranac Lake
Decidedly Different Trails

Have you heard the news? Saranac Lake is home to some great places to mountain bike! There's downhill excitement at Mount Pisgah and a fun trail network to explore at Dewey Mountain Recreation Center.

Made for dirt

Mt Pisgah

Besides having the region's only machine-built flow trail, The Cure, Mount Pisgah also has a 5-mile trail network of moderate to difficult paths to enjoy. It's not easy to get to the top of Pisgah, but those who do will be rewarded with awesome views of the Saranac River, the Mackenzie Range, and Whiteface Mountain.

Dewey Mountain Recreation Center

Affectionally called "Dewey" by locals, Dewey Mountain Recreation Center is a cross-country ski and snowshoe center in the winter that recently became a mountain biking center in the warmer months. Dewey's 5.5 miles of singletrack trails are stacked, meaning they get more difficult the farther you venture from the parking area. The Mumbly Peg trail gains 450 feet of elevation as it takes riders to the top of the mountain, where a nice view of the Saranac Chain of Lakes can be seen. It's especially nice in fall, when the leaves are off the trees. 

Bloomingdale Bog 

By far the mellowest trail on this list, the Bloomingdale Bog trail is an easy, scenic ride along an abandoned railroad corridor. The path is wide, straight, level, and absolutely easy to follow, making this a perfect choice for anyone who just wants to cruise past one scenic vista after another — and make no mistake, the wetlands along this 10.5-mile route are gorgeous to say the least.

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK Pledge

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
