Hit the trails in the Adirondacks
The woods of the Whiteface Region may be best experienced on two wheels. Whether you're looking for extreme downhill thrills, technical mountain climbs, or fast flowing singletrack, the Adirondacks are a must-ride mountain bike destination for you.
Events involving the mountain bike community are abound in the Whiteface Region. In summer, the Wilmington/Whiteface 100K traverses backcountry roads and smooth singletrack. In the fall, there's the Wilmington Mountain Bike Festival. When the weathers good, you can even try your hand at completing the Wonder of Wilmington mountain biking challenge.
These trail systems are largely built and maintained by volunteer members of the Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA) in collaboration with public agencies, including the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation, the Adirondack Park Agency, and not-for-profit environmental groups, towns, villages, and private landowners.
