Mountain Biking at Garnet Hill Lodge

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 bike 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 Bobcat Bar & Grill in our Outdoor Center or the Log House Restaurant up at the Lodge for something to eat.

“I enjoyed a beautiful day mountain biking recently at Garnet Hill.  Exactly the type of trails I wanted.  Enough of a challenge without me pondering my fate.  Wilderness Property Management has once again designed trails that allow you to gain elevation while still enjoying the ride.  All the intermediate trails were probably my favorite because I could ride fast (for me) with confidence.  The day ended with a BLT and a cold beer.  Perfect.  I highly recommend Garnet Hill.  The tougher trails will satisfy skilled riders, and the easier trails are a great introduction to mountain biking.” – Recent review from a happy biker.
