Central Adirondack Trail

The spectacular 150-mile Central Adirondack Trail cuts through the heart of the Adirondacks to provide an unparalleled motorcycling adventure along historic waterways, mountain passes and scenic outlooks.

Begin this route in Glens Falls and travel around the southern tip of Lake George, enjoying spectacular mountain views and great shopping in the downtown areas. Continue north on Highway 9 toward Warrensburg, passing over the Hudson River and into the Adirondack foothills to connect to Route 28. Continue riding, stopping in North Creek, home of Gore Mountain, to fuel up and enjoy a quick bite. Continue riding along route 28 along the Hudson River, enjoying the scenic forest and mountain views toward Indian Lake. In Indian Lake, stretch your legs while touring the latest exhibit at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, shop for unique gifts at Abanakee Studios, or book a whitewater rafting trip down the Hudson and extend your stop for a day or two.

Continue on Route 30 toward Blue Mountain Lake, home of the Adirondack Museum, and reconnect to Route 28, traveling along scenic lakeshores to Raquette Lake. Tour the historic Great Camp Sagamore, take scenic boat ride and continue riding west around Seventh and Fourth lakes to Old Forge. Stop for the afternoon, a meal or shopping before heading out of town and into the scenic wilderness of the central Adirondacks.

You will ride through several state forests and communities, including Forestport and Alder Creek, where you will connect to Route 12 and head South toward Remsen. Home of the Remsen Barn Festival, held annually on the last weekend of September, as well as a charming Main Street, stop for a stroll before continuing south to Route 365 toward Holland Patent and continue riding to Rome, the final destination on this route.
