Tires Down in Wilmington: Description
The best way to get your feet wet mountain biking in the Adirondacks.
(Two day beginner tour)
Dial in your skills at the Wilmington bike park where the pump track and obstacle area will teach you all you need for the trail work ahead. Then head up the 1.25 mile Quaker Mountain trail with its mix of fast turns and smooth flow.
Lunch is served at our trailside camp at the Hardy road trails where the day culminates. Four hours on the trails that put the Adirondacks on the map will have your mouth watering for more.
On day two riders graduate to the Flume network with its notorious rugged nature on the slopes of Whiteface Mountain. Stream crossings and manmade catwalks bring a new element to the mountain bike adventure as riders wind through the forests of the Flume trail. Lunch at the famous Hungry Trout riverside restaurant fuels riders for the second half of the day.
Placid is Wild: Description
Stay right in Lake Placid and ride from town to Lussies and Craigwood
(Two day advanced tour)
Enjoy the luxuries of staying in Lake Placid with endless options for dining, lodging, activities and nightlife. There is something here for the whole family and all within walking distance.
Your mountain bike adventure begins with a full tour of the Lussie and Logger trails right on the edge of town. These trails combine years of man made feature construction with miles of untouched foot paths. 11 miles before lunch in these trails will highlight the history of trail building in this region and end with lunch at our mobile camp before riding to Craigwood on the historic Jackrabbit trail.
Craigwood is a much different animal with lots of flow and modern gravity oriented features hidden in the forest around you. 5 miles here with your seat post slammed may earn you a ride home in the Boggie Van or you can opt for the 4 mile ride back through Lussie's to town if you like your post all the way up. Day two is a bit ighter with technical trails at Dewey Mountain in the morning and fast and flowing afternoon at Mount Pisgah with the longest machine built flow trail in the region. Accomplishing all the riding packed into these two days puts you in an elite group of riders who just covered 90% of the toughest trails in the region (in two days!).
