Rail bikes are returning to the Adirondacks and you can explore a part of the Adirondacks that has never seen passenger traffic.

The bikes along the Adirondack Scenic Railroad in Saranac Lake didn't return this Summer. New York State wants to replace the railroad between Lake Placid and Tupper Lake with a multi-use trail. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad challenged the decision, but the court case is still unresolved.

Revolution Rail is bringing the rail bikes back. Enjoy a 6 miles trip that crosses the Hudson River. The trip rolls through the beautiful Adirondack forest, along the banks of the Hudson River and over the Hudson on a trestle bridge before turning for home.

Check in at the North Creek Rail Depot before taking a 5 minutes bus ride to the rail bikes. There are four trips daily: 1030am, 1230pm, 230pm, and 430pm.

Bikes are available 7 days a week starting August 1st at $70 for a 2 person bike or $135 for four.
