    Lake Placid NY - recommendations


    My friends and I are thinking of heading to Lake Placid this June for a three day MTB weekend. We have been going to Kingdom Trails, VT for the last few years, but wanted to try something different.

    Is there a decent trail network in that area to keep us busy for a few days? Are the trails spread out (ie will we be driving between them a lot). Any bike shop or other recommendations of where to go to get help finding our way? OR should we just stick with VT?

    3,182 GF and I are headed to the same area in early June. I have been looking at Flume Falls, and Peninsula Trail. My GF is a beginner and we are both getting into bike-packing /XC type stuff.

    Look into Whiteface Mountain area for some intermediate to advanced trails...also Dewey Mountain.

    We booked a cabin at the Cobble Mountain Lodge, and Frank there is great to work with. It is just outside of the town, and closer to Whiteface Mt and Flume Falls. We are both more into the rustic/low-key type accommodations - not trashy, but we don't need massages, spas, WI-FI, etc. The cabins seemed the best route.

    Hope this all helps!
