While on NYS RT 30 in the area of Lake Pleasant be very aware of the speed limit as it's a lovely winding road which lead me to become acquainted with the local law enforcement. Friends traveling further north have also been pulled over. You can easily pick up speed during the week when the tourists aren't inundating the roadways & the traffic is almost nonexistent.

Enjoy the ride....be careful...have fun!

I can't wait for my trip to Newfoundland since I will be riding through the Adirondacks on my way back to OH. Definitely hitting 9N, 86, 431 and probably taking 30/28 to Utica...

very nice. I love autumn, but hate what follows. How did you manage to get those kayaks color co-ordinated.

For those of you interested, check out the Adirondacks Tag- o-Rama thread. It's a nice way to share some great roads in and near the Adirondack Park.

I.ve gotten quite a few pm's and emails asking about route so I thought I;d post a few here along with some info on the sights along the way

first up chestertown Ny to saranac lake NY via rte 9 and 73

View Larger Map


I generally slab it on I87 to exit 25 (chestertown) turn left and go

Last sunday it threatened to stop raining for the day and as the morning showed promise, off I went




5 or 6 miles from the exit you hang a right which takes you along Loon Lake for a bit

i hate this thread...

I grew up in Boston with a home in North Conway NH. I am currently living in Colorado and miss the forests and lush green hills of New England. This thread makes me want to get on my bike and just leave Colorado.

please keep this thread going! You need to ride more in the north conway area and maine. Thanks for this thread.

I just got done spending 12 days in Saranac Lake. It rained all but one of those days. It's been a couple of years since I was up there. Even with the rain, it made me realize how much I miss it up there.

But, it is a bad year for the black flies. Man they were thick this year.

Keep the pics coming...

Hey all, this is my first post (been lurking and getting inspired for a while). Just wanted to say thanks for the thread and great photos.

I've only ever done day trips around home, and I've got my first 4 day trip planned from Ottawa, Canada, down to the Adirondacks for the first week of July. Half Motel, Half Camping. Figuring I'd start small :)

So Thanks for the great ideas from this thread, and the invaluable info from this whole forum! Hopefully this is my first trip of many!

I just read that the Adirondacks are the largest national park in the states. I was not aware of that, but
Do love the place!. Especially these pics. Mine so suck in comparison!

Have a blast, the weather is going to be hot and humid with a threat of afternoon thunderstorms all week, cool mornings though and they are the finest you could ask for
