18.3 miles, Full day
This is a very difficult bike route through the woods on the eastern side of Lake George. For the most part, the ride along the shore of the lake is absolutely amazing with great views over the lake to the mountains on the opposite side but the trails through the deep woods can be a challenge with places where you will need to walk your bike unless you have a big suspension rig. This track is pretty accurate but may be slightly off in places. As long as you follow the general path of it you should be fine. The marked junctions in this guide are very very close to where you will find them along the trail. Make sure you have a full day to attempt this and get an early start. Follow the gps track closely.
Hogtown Trailhead Directions:
Follow Route 149 East towards Fort Anne from Lake George. 1.6 miles east of the intersection of Rte 149 and 9 take a left onto Buttermilk Falls Road. 3 miles down this road Buttermilk Falls becomes Sly Pond Raod and becomes unpaved. At 8.7 the name changes to Shelving Rock Road. Look for a large parking lot shortly on the right. This is the Hogtown trailhead where you will park. There is no fee to park here.
