12 Lake George is

12 Lake George is Bicycle Friendly Residents and visitors to the Southern Adirondacks have discovered some great cycling. The Warren County Bikeway, a 10 foot wide paved and landscaped County bike path was completed in 1978. This destination bike path begins in Lake George Village’s Westbrook Park and passes through 10.5 miles of Southern Adirondack scenery to Queensbury, where it passes over Quaker Road and links riders to the Feeder Canal System. Combined, the two bikeway system will offer visitors and residents twenty plus miles of “destination” bicycle riding opportunities. Historically, the path follows many of the old historic routes and transportation roads. The history of this military road is one of bloodshed. The road generally followed the present Route 9 and turned toward Blind Rock, a site of Indian torture, burning of captives, and Indian encampment. In 1848 a plank road was laid by Glens Falls and Lake George Plank Road Co. It too followed the existing road plan. Two toll gates were set up along the way, the toll trip to Lake George cost a horse and rider about twelve cents. Stagecoaches followed, and in the 1870’s passengers traveled 75 minutes and paid $1.25 to bump along the worn road. Rail line followed electric trolleys and the ensuing automobiles dealt the final death knell to them all. The rail line was torn up the right of way sold in 1957. In September of 1977 Warren County began the process of creating a bike path on the D&H Railroad right-of-way. Welcome to Lake George!
