NORTH CREEK RAILBIKING
The North Bridge Run takes riders on a 7 mile out-and-back trip through the beautiful Adirondack forest canopy, and then over the Hudson on a spectacular trestle bridge. After checking in at the Station, riders will board a shuttle bus for a short ride further North to the launch point. After the ride is completed, the shuttle will bring folks back to the Station.
Riders will see many species of wildflower and opportunist shrub that are beginning to reclaim the tracks. Just before the halfway point riders will cross the wonderful trestle bridge with views up and down the Hudson River, with the confluence of the Boreas and Hudson Rivers seen to the East. Riders will then have a break on the banks of the Boreas River while the guides spin their bikes around for the trip back.
HOW DIFFICULT IS IT?
Railbiking is accessible for nearly all ages and ability levels and is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Our ride has a slight uphill grade on the way out and a slight downhill grade on the way back.
