There are a variety of biking trails to explore in the Lake George region and southern Adirondacks. Find one that suits your skill level and head out for a ride. Some of the most popular routes are listed below, but you can also visit our Biking Guide where you'll discover even more options.
Popular Bike Routes
Warren County Bikeway
At the southern tip of Lake George where the steamboats dock, you'll find the entrance to the Warren County Bikeway - a scenic and paved 9.4-mile-long bike path that runs from Lake George to Glens Falls. The bikeway is dotted with signs from the historical association that make the trip educational as well as fun! There are places to stop along the way and take a break, so be sure to pack snacks and plenty of water.
During the ride, you will bike through a forest under a canopy of trees, cross two bridges, and pass a small inlet of Glen Lake, among other highlights. Please note that there are some sections of the bikeway where the trail shares the shoulder of the road with motor vehicles.
Note: Dogs are prohibited on the bikeway, as indicated by signs.
Feeder Canal Trail
Another one of our favorites is the Feeder Canal Trail, a 9-mile-long gravel path that passes many historic and scenic sights, including the remains of a five-stepped lock. Because of the gravel, mountain bikes are recommended for use on the Feeder Canal Trail.
