Welcome to the "Biking Capital of the Adirondacks"!
In the Whiteface Region, you'll find opportunities for road, mountain and Whiteface downhill biking. With a beautiful set of roadways surrounded by mountains, lakes and rivers, you'll experience an Adirondack biking adventure unlike any other.
Biking & Cycling Whiteface
Wilmington mountain biking is one of the most popular activities in the Whiteface Region. There are several trail systems on and around Whiteface Mountain to explore so that you'll never get bored – and you'll always be challenged. Whiteface Mountain, which boasts the greatest vertical drop in the East, is not just for skiing and riding. Hop on the gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface and take an exhilarating ride to the base lodge, where you can take a break or go back up for another run.
Adirondack road cycling is equally exciting in the region, with many rolling hills and winding roadways to explore. Cycling to the village of Lake Placid from Wilmington is just one of many popular ways to train. And you'll want to practice so that you can participate in the biggest biking event in the area this summer – The Wilimington-Whiteface Bike Fest.
