New Flow Trails and Climbing Trails
McCauley Mountain in Old Forge is a mountain bike haven, with 15 miles of professionally built trails and more being developed. The total descent is 2,077 ft with a vertical drop over 600 feet.
20 different mountain bike trails serve all skill levels of mountain biking enthusiasts. There are single tracks, some of which are narrow and rocky, as well as technical, machine-built flow trails with large berms, rollers, and jumps for intermediate and advanced riders. There are also wider, multi-use trails that accommodate cross country and alpine skiers during the winter.
For additional riding, McCauley’s trails link to the MTB network at Maple Ridge, and more trails at nearby Nicks Lake. Free parking is available at the base of McCauley, and the trails access the village of Old Forge via the Maple Ridge Trail network.
The TOBIE Trail is a 14-mile recreational pathway connecting Thendara, Old Forge, Big Moose, Inlet and Eagle Bay. In addition to connecting these Central Adirondack communities, it also connects users to multiple-use recreation areas. Cyclists, hikers, cross country skiers and snowshoers enjoy non-motorized access to waterfronts, back country trails, shops, restaurants, and other attractions.
