Mountains, valleys, and genuinely majestic sights await you on this one-of-a-kind ride. No place is better to start than Lake George when you want to explore the Adirondacks. So, let’s open up our Thirsty Biker apps and get ready for a ride like no other through one of the most incredible areas of the country.

In episode 26 of the Thirsty Biker Chronicles, we’re motoring through the Adirondacks on the Lake George Loop.

Must-See Stops

Our ride starts and ends in the same location, Ticonderoga, New York, where Lake George and Lake Champlain meet. More than one-third of this land is considered a part of the Adirondack Park, with many full-time residents and visitors discovering the sights each year. From lakes and mountains to historic landmarks, the city of Ticonderoga is the ideal meeting place for those who are looking to explore the area. With a rich history dating back to the 18th century, taking in the sights in this area is a must. For all the history buffs out there, be sure to take some time to explore Fort Ticonderoga, which greets over 100,000 visitors each year.

Once you’ve had your fill of history, it’s time to get the party started, and what better place to start than at Boar’s Nest Bar & Grill in Fort Ann? The ultimate biker meeting spot, Boar’s Nest, offers plenty of ways to have a good time, including dancing, live music, themed nights, and much more. Enjoy cold drinks and delicious bites while you rest up for another day of exploration in the Adirondacks. From there, head over to Full Moon Bar & Grill in Lake George for homestyle food, daily specials, happy hour, and more. Offering beautiful views of Glen Lake, a hop, skip, and a jump away from stunning Lake George, Full Moon is the spot for visitors and locals to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Curves and more excitement await on Route 9 South as you take in the crystal clear lakes and incomparable sights of the area. Spend a moment on Lake Schroon so that you’re able to take advantage of the scenery for just a bit longer. There is quite literally no better place to enjoy the sights than Lake George, nestled securely in the Adirondacks. When you’re looking for a ride to take you on a quest to see some of the most beautiful parts of the country, this ride will get you there. So, without further ado, let’s open up our apps, and let’s ride.
