Radar Time
      Dewey Mountain Recreation Center features 5.5 miles of single-track mountain bike trails which happily co-exist with roughly 7.5 miles of XC ski trails . Difficulty ranges from cruiser to hardcore as riders ascend about 450 vertical feet to the summit, where they are greeted with views of the Saranac Chain of Lakes (especially good in the fall).

      Dewey Mountain is owned by the Town of Harrietstown and operated by Adirondack Lakes and Trails Outfitters, with support from the Dewey Mountain Friends.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: City Managed
      Access Info:
      ​Drive south out of Saranac Lake on NYS Rt 3 toward Tupper Lake. Look for the sign for Dewey Mountain Recreation Center on the left. Park and ride through the lodge breezeway. Look for the large kiosk and map directly in front of you in the base area.
