Trails to ride in the Adirondacks
Hey all, I'm hoping to get in an extended weekend, late May, in the Adirondacks somewhere. It's a central location for meeting up with riding buddies.
I've seen Lake Placid has a DH run; but we are all more XC Trail riders and some novices.
I've read up on Inlet, NY and the surrounding areas; which look promising.
Any suggestions on time of year and locations to ride and places you've stayed would be most appreciated.
Go to the New York page for information on the Adirondack.

There's a bike shop in Inlet, NY that supposedly has all the scoop on the Inlet area.

If you go, post back what it's like up there. I live downstate and have been wondering if it's worth a long weekend trip.
Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.
I don't know.....
but I have to believe the blackflies in late May would be enough to carry you away. Don't flat!
Inlet is not a bad place as a base for XC type riding.
The owner of Pedals & Petals (his name is Ted, I believe) has a map in his shop he has marked with local trails that are good for riding. Also, Bike Magazine did a story about riding in that area about a year ago, so check into their old issues if you can.
There area also trails in the Old Forge and Raquette Lake areas which are not too far from inlet. A couple of the trails I've ridden in the area that are not bad are:
- Sargent Ponds Tioga Point Trail near Long Lake
- Moss, Bubb, & Sis Lake trail near Inlet (short)
- Uncas trail near Raquette Lake (some good trail mixed with dirt road ridiing)
Other places to look for trails info.
Keep in mind that the trails will just be getting dry in late May (provided May itself isn't too wet) and the blackfly season will just be cranking up. This is no problem as long as you never, ever stop moving.
