The River Road section is about nine miles "in & out". The first four miles of the River Road Section is suitable for mountain bikers or talented hybrid riders. But would really recommend a mountain bike. The last mile and a half is just for mountain bikers. Lots of ruts, rocks, mud, very rough, lots of debris from fallen trees as result of the logging operations. There is a lot of great scenery and some nice hilly areas. You can do the first four miles at a causal pace or you can really hammer on the hills. The last portion can be ridden the same way but if you decide to hammer dot it on the way out - The Gay Pond section (right at the "V") is uphill most of the way. That speaks for itself - if you go in and out, the ride back could be a fast one. If you make the loop around Vielle Pond, Old Stage and Thomas you will add eight to ten miles to the ride.
The trail is in the town of Lake Luzerne, NY; see the Trail Page for detaled directions.
