Garnet Hill Mountain Biking

Looking for a place to mountain bike in the Adirondacks that also has rental bikes and lessons? Try Garnet Hill Lodge! Garnet Hill’s varied 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 Adirondack mountain biking trails feature fantastic views of the 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 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.
