Overview

This new series highlights low-traffic scenic roads, both dirt and paved, suitable for riding on both mountain and road bikes.
The Adirondack State Park is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and Glacier National Parks combined. The park's 6 million acres offer plenty of diverse and scenic terrain for bicycling. In addition to tours in the famed and rugged High Peaks region, where New York State's tallest mountains predominate, the authors lead you to routes along the gentler roads of the park. They meander around scenic lakes and through pine forests, pointing out a variety of wild and unspoiled vistas along the way. Many rides also lead to hiking trails, swimming holes, and fishing spots along secluded streams. Tours range in length from 15 to 80 miles and offer adventures for cyclists of all ages and ability levels. Each tour includes: Easy-to-read map Mileage and directions Landmarks and natural highlights Historical anecdotes Bike shop listings
