Last weekend I was in Lake Placid for my sister’s birthday. We rented a cabin at the ADK Loj, did some hiking and then had dinner at Big Slide Brewery. I’ll get to the hike later, but now I want to recap the trails Jordan and I rode while we were up there. My sister and her husband Brian left early on Sunday to drive back down to NJ, so Sunday was the perfect time to hit the trails. Our friends Jason and Aubrey met us at the trailhead just outside of Lake Placid on Riverside Drive. The trail system (called Lussi and Loggers) is right off the famous Jackrabbit Trail.
Trailforks is my favorite mtb app, it has trail maps that are categorized by difficulty; very handy to have while on the trail!
There are lots of features to ride here. The trails are technical but not to horrible, as I could ride everything, minus a few of the skinny bridges. Lots of roots and rocks, though!
And plus the views were just amazing.
Riders have the option of riding down the boulder below. Not me, yet…
We covered about 13 miles in ~4 hours. It was my longest mtb ride yet!
