High Peaks: Four Easy Adirondack Mountain Biking/Hiking Trails (Lake Placid NY)

If your children are just learning to ride a bike try any of the smooth paved roads of the Adirondack Campgrounds. These paved pathways are a perfect learning spot for that young rider. 


According to the Barkeater Trail Alliance's Founder Matt McNamera there are easy trails on their network that get that new rider out into the woods. 



The Hardy Road trail system in Wilmington is a smooth wooded path with no significant climb. To get to Hardy Road from Route 86 in Wilmington turn south onto Springfield Road for about 3 miles. Turn onto Hardy Road for another 1.2 mile, parking will be on the right and the trailhead across the road.
“The benefit to the Hardy Road trails is its location to the road,” assures McNamara. “If kids overstep their comfort level it is a quick trip back to the car or a quick hike to Good Luck Ledges.”
