Biking is a big part of Lake George Area recreation. The paths and trails are diverse, from off-road trails to paved bikeways. For a grueling workout or some easy going fun, biking is a great option in the Lake George Area.

The Lake George Area is a haven for cyclists. Biking is a growing recreation in the area with miles of paths and trails to be pedaled. It’s a fun, family activity that ensures your exercise routine doesn’t go on break just because you are. Much of the Lake George Area is bike-accessible, especially the downtown communities of Lake George Village, Glens Falls, and Bolton Landing. Cyclists of all types will find a path or trail to follow in the Lake George Area. If you’re a mountain biker, you’ll love the small-town Adirondack mountain bike courses in the area, boasting technical runs of all difficulty levels. Road bikers will appreciate the long, winding ups and downs through unique Adirondack communities. For a more family-friendly bike ride, Warren County Bikeway boasts 9.4 miles of safe trails and paths. When you vacation in the Lake George Area make sure you bring your bike.

Hackensack Mountain Park

Hackensack is a small mountain located right in the heart of Warrensburg.  It has a rich history, with many of the historic buildings in the hamlet having been built with rock quarried on the mountain.  Its name is derived from an Algonquin word meaning “where two rivers come together”, and those who make the climb to the peak are rewarded with a panoramic view of not only the hamlet, but also the confluence of the Hudson and Schroon Rivers.  A series of trails loop up the peak
