This trail network, although short, is more deserving of a higher rating. The Lakeshore Trail is brutal, but makeable. I cleared it once, on a bone-dry day, after eating all my Wheaties, the stars and planets where all aligned, and I just made good with my girlfriend. Who, by the way, has cleared it many more times than me! Scenery is the best I have ever seen on a mountain bike trail. Whiteface looms in the background. Lucky to have lived in Lake Placid for 3 years and to be able to call this ride my after work loop. Glad I know there are way better trails than this in and around Placid. Hah!
