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.
