A great shore ride followed by a strenous biking adventure through the remote woods on the eastern side of Lake George. This is a very difficult bike route through the woods on the eastern side of Lake George. For the most part, the ride along the shore of the lake is absolutely amazing with great views over the lake to the mountains on the opposite side but the trails through the deep woods can be a challenge with places where you will need to walk your bike unless you have a big suspension rig. This track is pretty accurate but may be slightly off in places. As long as you follow the general path of it you should be fine. The marked junctions in this guide are very very close to where you will find them along the trail. Make sure you have a full day to attempt this and get an early start. Follow the gps track closely.

This trail is everything the review says it is. Very challenging. Had to walk several times. I'm not an advanced Rider though. The downhills, as well as the uphills were aggressive. Views were outstanding. A slight detour allowed you to squeeze in Shelving Rock Mtn. Summit. Did it on 90F. day
