The lowdown: Take a spin around Mt. Pisgah on this short loop. Start with a ride through downtown Saranac Lake and stop at Lake Colby Beach for a refreshing dip before the climb up Pisgah, where there are great views of the McKenzie Range and Whiteface Mountain.
Directions: From downtown take Main St. to Broadway, heading north on Route 86. Turn right on Trudeau Rd., just past the beach, and follow it around Pisgah. Turn right on Park Ave., then turn left on Circle St. and left on Margaret St. to return to Route 3.
