It would be an awesome uphill trail with some hike-a-bike (riding back down was awesome too), but its a well known hiking trail, and because of that theres just too many people hiking there to be able to enjoy biking it. Theres a sign at the entrance that clearly says bikes are allowed as long as the trails don't indicate otherwise but you WILL get some looks and comments if you do try to ride it. Nothing against hikers by the way.

Similar Products Used: Across the street theres a way less traveled 1.1 mile snow mobile trail thats not exactly challenging but fun nevertheless with some brides and winding paths covered with a decent portion of rocks and roots.

Coming from the lake down to the road is the best part of the whole ride (this is where you can ride some rock gardens and catch some air.) Otherwise is it basically flat cross-country double track. Be careful when you go past the lake though because it is real easy to get lost up there, especially when the lakes are high, there are a couple of spots where trails run right along the lake, and can get flooded.

Customer Service

Leave a car at the West Lake Boat Launch of the trailhead for nine corner lake, and take another up to West Stoner like, a couple of miles further up route 10. Then follow the snow mobile trails and power the last couple of miles downhill back to your other car.

The first mile is mostly uphill intermediate single track with some large rocks and log bridges. Past the lake the trail continues for many miles but is swampy in some areas. Since I rode in the middle of rain and thunderstorms I didn't go more than 3 or 4 miles. The trail is seldom used (I did see some tire tracks though) and is leaf covered and moist is many areas. Not overly steep in any portion that I rode. The snowmobile trails don't seem to be used much at all in summer in this portion of the Adirondacks for hiking.

Customer Service

Follow trail to lake. Nine corners lake is only accesed via trails, so it is crystal clear and clean and uninhabited. Past the lake, the trail follows snowmobile routes for many miles.

Similar Products Used: There are many other hikig, skiing, and snowmobile trails nearby which are totally legal to bike as well.

Typical Adirondak riding. The first couple of miles are heavily travled by hikers. After that there is miles and miles of lone single track and snowmobile trails to ride. Not to hilly but rocky and muddy. Fun. Four star on tranquility alone

Similar Products Used: Specticle lake. Goodluck lake.
