Beta got busy yesterday. Finished a 1 mile section of sweet singletrack on the west side of the Hardy Road Wild Forest. Gonna be a big year for Mtn Biking in the Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Wilmington region. A lot of new stuff will be built.
Looks like an awesome place! Didn't Chris do a TR from up there back in the fall?
Is it mostly hike-up-ride-down, or more XC stuff? are Shuttle laps possible?
I'd like to get up there at some point. Paging MC2... you in?!
Someone did do a TR a year or so ago. We've built a bunch more since then. Hardy Road is all XC and all sweet single track. The Flume is XC with mostly single track and some double track.
Shuttling is done w/ the "Poor Man's Downhill." We start just above the Atmospheric Science Center and rip down a state snowmobile trail, crossing the Reservoir hiking trail for WF/Ester And now we can continue down the snowmobile trail crossing (w/ permission granted to the public) private campground to exit onto Rt86 right at Steinhoff's.
Steinhoff's is the hub of the wheel!!
