At the southern tip of
Lake George where the steamships dock, you'll find the entrance to The Warren County Bikeway - a beautiful wooded 9-mile long bike path. The bike path is dotted with signs from the historical association, telling of times past and historical events that make the trip educational as well as great fun! There are picnic tables along the way and scenic spots to stop and take a break, so be sure to pack your backpack with a snack and enjoy the sights and sounds of the streams that run along the path. For a Warren County Bike Trail map, call 518-623-2877.
Along the way you will bike in a forest under a canopy of trees. You'll pass the
Amusement Park, continue over the bridge near the outlet malls and over a bridge which goes over a small inlet of Glen Lake and past the Glens Falls Country Club.
For the avid biker, the trail eventually connects to the Feeder Canal Trail by way of an abandoned railroad right-of-way in the city of
Glens Falls. The
Canal trail is a gravel path that passes the five stepped locks, which is an amazing site. This is best for mountain bikes and not suited for road bikes. It is also about 9 miles long. For a map, call the Feeder Canal Alliance at 792-5363.
