One of the great things about creating an Adirondack hut-to-hut system is occasionally, but not nearly enough, we get to check out some trails for potential routes. Yesterday was such a day. After a meeting in Lake Pleasant we had a few hours in the afternoon to explore the Speculator Tree Farm by bicycle. We had a great afternoon with temperatures just warm enough to prevent a sweat, a few black flies but not enough to make a difference, and reasonably dry road conditions with only a few big puddles we had to bike through. On our 18 mile venture there were plenty of hills that provided for a challenging workout.
Imagine a route that brings you into this area to hike, bike, or canoe!
