Rail Biking is Back in the Adirondacks
Rail bikes are returning to the Adirondacks. Revolution Rail Company provides the rail bike and you and a friend provide the energy to pedal for approximately 6 miles round trip. You take a break at the end of the first 3-miles and pause to refuel at the picnic area. Then off you go for the return trip of 3-miles.
The trip takes you along the Hudson River and through the forest. If you're not in great shape not to worry, the route is fairly flat and includes crossing a trestle bridge spanning the Hudson.
The Revolution Rail Company has worked out a contract with the Saratoga & North Creek Railway for use of the track. Currently unused by tourist trains, the companies were able to come to an agreement on a 3-mile section of rail north of the depot. The current plan is to expand the trips to 7 days a week.
