Make history on two wheels
Roll along gentle, winding roads surrounded by gorgeous scenery, fragrant forests, burbling rivers, and soaring peaks. Explore some of the most unique history in the Adirondacks on this scenic history trail. Starting with a ride up Mt. Defiance, overlooking historic Fort Ticonderoga and Lake Champlain, you'll journey along back roads (paved, we promise!) past intimate lakes, cascading waterfalls and to a historic ghost town and mine. Stop for lunch in Long Lake at one of the oldest surviving hotels in the Adirondacks, then continue on to The Adirondack Experience, the Museum at Blue Mountain Lake. The museum's exhibits about great camps, logging, mining, and natural history are fun and interactive and the views of the lake are spectacular. Top off the day with a ride through scenic wilderness to the hamlet of Minerva and a can't-miss stop at Sporty's Iron Duke Saloon, where the food is great, the drinks are cold, and motorcycle history is all around. Finish up your day in Schroon Lake, where there are plenty of comfortable retro cabins and motels, just right for a night of relaxation and rest. Feeling a little rebellious? Simply do the loop in the other direction. Either way, you'll have a beautiful blast making your own adventurous history.
