“Great bike path into Lake George ”

We stayed at the Lake George RV Resort which connects to this bike path. There you can take a 4 mile ride into the Lake George Village or bike into Glens Falls. We took the path to the village twice during our stay. It is a nicely paved path. The path to the village had some fun downhill inclines which were somewhat challenging on the way back but very rewarding when done! During both trips we encountered deer!

We took our bikes into Lake George with the intention of biking everywhere. Instead we only used them obce to ride into the Bikeway on one of our days there - and we were not disappointed - MOSTLY!

As long as you stay within the mountain areas and don't go past into the more residential/industrial areas closer to Glen Falls, then it's a nice ride in the forest. The trail is paved and has lite to medium hills. I have not been biking in years and was able to make it both directions totaling 20 miles with little to no difficulty - although admittedly I did need to get off and walk up 3 areas where the incline was too much for me. This was mostly on the way back from Glen Falls.
Speaking of Glen Falls. It was a waste of time. The bikeway breaks up into various parts that criss-cross busy roadways. You end up biking behind peoples homes, businesses and other industrial areas. There isn't much to see once you get off the actual mountain pass and come around the golf course (BTW - we missed the sign where the bikeway continued after the golf course and had to back rack about 400 feet or so). I would not go any further than that or actually I would probably go just a little bit more, as far as the ice cream shop (Sprinkles Ice Cream Shoppe) and then turn back - look for it!

The Warren County Bikeway is easy to find due to excellent markings and location. The start is from Lake George across from the Steam Boat Company. It is a wide pawed path, however the first couple of miles were moderate uphill. We took our two boys (9 and 4). The 4 yr. old has a bike with training wheels and is a very strong "biker". However, the 40 - 50 min. non-stop uphill was very tiring for him. We had to abandon mission and turn back after couple miles, so not sure how the rest of the bikeway looks like. It is appropriate for ages 7 and up. It is in the woods, so nicely shaded. It has numerous historical markings, good for stops and learning the past.

We walk this bike path quite a bit and really love the spot near Glen Lake, at Ash Drive. It is one of our favorite parts! If you walk north toward Rt 149 you will be pleasantly surprised with the brook that runs along side of the path. In the summer there are plenty of flowers and nature that adorn the path, as well as some shaded sections. (Really quiet too). You wind up behind the outlets if you want to explore that area, or you can proceed over the pedestrian bridge which leads you further towards Lake George. Great for walking, jogging or biking (kind of hilly if on a bike!)

Two important issues: 1) This is not a bike path, as there are many encounters with cars. 2) This is not a flat ride as there are many ascents on the first half from Lake George Lake to Glens Falls Village, from 3 to 5%, and a couple of tiny climbs of 10 and 15%.

The Good: The first half, from Lake George Lake to Glens Falls Village, is really wonderful. The path is impeccably maintained; no potholes, and almost no debris. It is topographically interesting with deep woods, marshlands, lakes, babbling brooks running alongside the path. The ascents and descents are fun and challenging. Some spectacular views. You even pass by two funky amusement parks. Once in Glens Falls, the road is totally flat, and you must pass over about twenty cross streets, some with light traffic, some with heavier traffic, all in somewhat dingy neighborhoods. One exception is the fantastic Cooper's Cave Brewery and Ice Cream Parlor, facing directly onto the bike path. Do not miss it. Other highlights are the historical markers along the path; very nicely done. This is, in fact, not a heavily used bike path considering how good it is; I did it in both directions, twice, for 44 miles, three days in a row, and never saw more the 25 other people on any given day, in the middle of July.
