I'm wondering if anyone has been mountain biking in the Lake Placid NY area? My husband (rayder) and I are thinking about planning a trip up there. They say there are many mountain biking trails, but we're looking for technical singletrack.
Check out trail.motionbased.com Use the quick filters tab, that seems to be the best way to find trails on that site. Not much info other than routes, but its a start. Also there is a trail listed on mtbr, but it doesnt seem like a must-ride place....

although they are climbing guides they know the whole area inside and out
We have been going there for 20 plus years. There is not much mountain biking inthe area. Some at Mt Van Hovenberg, the cross country ski venue, but not much else to speak of. Great paddling, hiking, climbing and fishing....
My in-laws live there. Have been going for years. TONS of trails...tons of singletrack. Stop by Placid Planet bicycles in town...they have maps & can tell you how & where to find the trails. Nearby Saranac lake (10 minutes) also has some good trails on the edge of town.
