Mountain Biking Saranac Lake Central School Trail 1

**   Add a review
#219 of 297 mountain bike trails in New York
#11,714 in the world

This is a mix bag trail that is used for the Cross Country Team, along with another trail I will add later. There is some short, steep climbs that tend to be more difficult because it is where water runs down. Most of the trails are ridges that are parallel to the school. There are a few sketchy areas, but for the most part this is a beginner trail.

If you loop it twice and hit the alternative trails you can turn this into a 2 mile trail.

Also you can connected it with a couple other trails (Saranac Lake Central School Trail 2 and the Lizzie Oliver Trail).

My guess if you tried hanging out much in the parking lot when school is in session, you would receive some unwanted attention

Getting there
The trail starts and ends at the Saranac Lake High School - 79 Cararas Ave., Saranac Lake, NY. (West of the downtown area) Trail isn't marked so you really need to follow the directions. From Main and Lapan Highway (Route 3), head west until the traffic light. Turn right on Canaras, THEN after about 100 yards turn right in to the school. As you drive into the school lot you want to keep veering right. The lot you want to be in is elevated and by the maintenance area of the school. I think the sign says: "no student parking" Once in the parking lot the trail. is on the edge of the upper side of the lot. I will include a map This trail can also be accessed from Neil Street, but it would be more difficult to find it that way

    The trails in here used to be the high school XC course. Since they moved to Dewey, the trails have fallen into disrepair. Also, new construction (fall 2018) will cut access from half the trail accessed from the high school
