      Saranac Lake is home to Dewey Mountain and Mt. Pisgah, two ski areas (cross country and downhill, respectively) that are a mountain biker's dream in the warmer months. Dewey Mountain features several miles of mountain bike trails with something for just about everyone. Mt. Pisgah boasts "The Cure" - currently the region's only machine-built flow trail, as well as 3 miles of smooth as silk single track. The newest addition to the offerings in Saranac Lake is Fowler's Crossing, which is a mix of old school trails and newer purpose built trails. Fowler's tends to dry quickly after precipitation, and also offers relatively mellow options for beginning riders and youth.
