This 290 mile Lake, Mountain and Forest route starts in Alder Creek and travels from there Northeast on New York State Route 28.
This is a lovely ride across the Moose River Plains and offers view of some of the lakes. From Blue Mountain lake we take a right and head south on the local favorite route 30. This roads winds its way nicely south through the hills to another local favorite, the Great Sacandaga Lake.
The route can be easily extended to do a complete lap of the lake by turning right. But instead we turn left and follow the lake to its most north-easterly point, before following more turns up to Diamond Point.
Travelling North now we twist and turn along the edge of Lake George which looks over the water to Vermont. At Moriah Center we head west again crossing I-87 and continuing over to the lovely route 28N, a twisty and scenic run to long lake where we meet up again with Route 28 and back to the start.
