Looking for a great destination for mountain biking in the Adirondacks? Look no further! The single-track bike trails, cross country ski trails, and old roads surrounding Garnet Hill Lodge offer a great variety of mountain bike terrain here in the Southern Adirondacks.
Garnet Hill’s mountain biking terrain features 5 miles of new, dedicated single-track mountain biking trails in the Log House Area as well as an extensive network of pre-existing single-track trails, cross country ski trails and dirt and gravel roads. The new trails were built to the highest standards by Wilderness Property Management, a local expert in the bike world, and designed specifically for mountain bikers.
Some of our trails feature fantastic views of the Adirondack’s high peaks, while on others, you will find yourself in a serene wooded setting. After a fantastic time out on the trails, head back to the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center or the Log House Restaurant up at the Lodge for something to eat. The Log House Restaurant is open 7 days a week year-round for lunch and dinner, and serves Afternoon Tea on Saturdays from 3-5pm and Brunch on Sundays from 11am to 3pm.
Our new Log House Area Trails, encompass 5 miles of dedicated single-track mountain biking trails. These trails intersect and mingle with the wider ski trails and pre-existing single-track trails in numerous locations, so you can ride on one and then switch to the other to try something different. Log House Loop and Paradox are built to flow in both directions and allow riders of a variety of ability levels to ride at their own pace. In addition, we have an extensive pre-existing network of dedicated single-track bike trails, quiet country roads and ski trails that are suitable for mountain biking.
For beginners, the easiest riding is on the roads – Old Farm Road, 4-H Road, Harvey Road, and 13th Lake Road. The Old Faithful Trail connects 4-H Road and Harvey Road and makes a nice beginner loop.
Intermediate riders will enjoy the Log House area single-track trails, as well as many of the ski trails. Intermediate bike rides are found on Trapper, Cougar, and Sugarhouse Trails. These trails also lead to Mountain View Trail, Apple Way and The North Acres Farm, where you can find beautiful mountain views.
In addition, road bikers have a abundance of routes to choose from in the surrounding areas for challenging and scenic rides throughout the southeastern Adirondacks.
