Cycling and Mountain Biking

Bicycling in the Schroon Lake RegionWith striking scenery, a variety of terrain and old-fashioned towns to explore along the way, biking in the Adirondacks is always an adventure. In the Schroon Lake Region— your Adirondack base camp—enjoy an array of cycling and mountain biking routes for riders of all abilities and fitness levels.

Try the scenic 25-mile ride on Hoffman Loop; beginning at Hoffman Road you will journey past Bullet, Muller, Bigsby and Oliver Ponds. Or set out on the Adirondack Marathon loop — featuring 26.2 miles of paved, moderate terrain with short rolling hills and places to stop — including two Schroon Lake hiking trails and a public beach.

For a longer ride, the Grand Loop offers 56 miles of beautiful scenery through the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest area, with a crossing of the Boreas River and the views along Boreas Road. Stop at some of the notable Schroon Lake attractions along the way, or simply rest and take in the views.

If you prefer to get off the road, try the 3-mile Crane Pond Road, which leads to beautiful Crane Pond and the Pharoah Mountain trailhead. Or for more serious mountain biking trails, check out the Thilo Road route — a 3-mile non-maintained dirt road through the woods or the 9.7 mile Extreme Loop which leads from Thilo Road to Charley Hill.
