Adirondack mountain biking and road cycling
Whether you are looking for mountain biking or road cycling, we've got mileage for you to cover. Pedal beneath the lush forest canopy, take to an adrenaline packed mountain bike trail, or ride along the scenic byways.
The Adirondacks in northern New York are known for limitless cycling opportunities and Tupper Lake is at the crossroads of it all. The village is located at the intersection of the Adirondack (NYS Route 3) and Olympic (NYS Route 30) Scenic Byways. Enjoy everything from multi-day loops to relaxing scenic rides along the region's lakes and rivers.
Get dirt beneath your wheels and history in your gears as you pedal along old logging and access roads. Some favorites by locals and visitors alike include:
- Dear Pond Loop - Located just east of Tupper Lake, Deer Pond Loop is a great trail ride with scenic views amidst dense Adirondack forest.
- Horseshoe/Lows Dam - Roll back in time as you ride into Lows Upper Dam and discover the ruins of what was once the largest maple producing plant in New York state. The ride features an optional hike up Low's Ridge.

Leave No Trace
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
