The lowdown: This ride follows Forest Home Rd. as it passes Little Colby Pond, Lake Clear, and Upper St. Regis Lake. A break at Donnelly’s Ice Cream for a sweet treat is a must! Keep an eye out for wildlife, especially late in the day.
Directions: Take Broadway north heading out of downtown, turn left at the light on Ampersand Ave., then turn right on Forest Home Rd. (County Route 18). At the intersection with Route 30 turn right, then turn left to stay on 30 at Lake Clear Junction to head toward Paul Smith’s College. Turn right to re-turn via Route 86.
