- a unique blend of striking scenic beauty, endless outdoor recreational opportunities and celebrated heritage.
Featuring scenic country roads, impressive backdrops and a variety of terrain for all fitness levels, the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain offers some of the best biking in the Adirondacks. Whether you're looking for an afternoon ride, an all-day trek, or an easy-to-extreme mountain biking adventure, the Lake Champlain Region has trails, roads and routes to explore.
Don't miss the Adirondack Coast Bikeways, a network of 14 loops that is part of the 750 miles of the Lake Champlain Bikeways that run from Lake Champlain all the way to Chambly, Quebec. Try the Acres of Apples for a trip around five different orchards, the Fort to Fort loop and travel from one historic fort to the next, or Iron to Iron for a picturesque route through Port Henry, an homage to the Industrial Revolution. Many of the routes will take you past restaurants, museums and a variety of other Lake Champlain attractions.
If thrills and spills are what you seek, check out the Stoney Lonesome Loop—a half day trip of riding on remote, unpaved roads with a variety of terrain. Or set out on the Coon Mountain Circuit, an 18.5 mile Lake Champlain mountain biking loop that includes Split Rock Mountain, Webb-Royce Swamp and Coon Mountain. Glimpse an array of wildlife including bald eagles and peregrine falcons, enjoy beautiful views and take advantage of the hiking trails along the way!
