Saranac Lake Recreational Path Description

The Saranac Lake Recreational Path is a .52 mile rail with trail in the village of Saranac Lake. The path begins at Brandy Brook Avenue on the south side of the rail corridor that is used by the Adirondack Scenic Railroad which runs between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. Surface of the path is primarily dirt and it is separated from the active railroad by a chain link fence. The path shares a short segment of a dirt road on the northern perimeter of Pine Ridge Cemetery and Fawn Street before crossing Pine Street and proceeding on the north side of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad corridor. The Recreational Path climbs slightly to pass under East Pine Street and then descends back to the grade of the railroad. The path ends at another intersection with Pine Street. There is limited on street parking on Dugway at the Herb Garden and at the end of Stevenson Lane at Triangle Park.

The Saranac Lake Recreational Path is now part of the Adirondack Rail-Trail, which will one day stretch from Tupper Lake to Lake Placid through Saranac Lake.

Saranac Lake Recreational Path Reviews

This is a short half mile dirt bike path running along the RR Tracks in down town Saranac Lake. It is only a 5 minute ride or 10 minutes round trip. From the Pine Street and Dugway end of the trail near the River the trail is north of the river for 100 yards and then crosses the road and runs along Pine Ridge Cemetary on a dirt road off Fawn Street. The east end off Brady Brook Street is just a short way north of the right hand turn on Rt 86 or River Street. The long term plan is to turn the whole Adirondack RR into a bike path with the RR only running between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake Village with parallel bike path.
