Ride The Rails Through New York’s Adirondack Mountains For The Afternoon Of A Lifetime
Over the last several years, rail biking has become an increasingly popular attraction that we’ve seen pop up in places all around the country. Little do some New Yorkers realize, there are rail bike rides right here in the Empire State! Open for the year and officially taking reservations, now’s the time to plan a trip to ride the rails along this scenic railroad up north in the Adirondack Mountains.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Opening up last year in Thendara, Adirondack Scenic Rail Bikes is the newest rail biking adventure to hit New York.
With only two other operating rail bikes in the state of New York, this ride is an exclusive one that's worth taking the drive to Thendara for!
During this rail biking adventure, you'll have the unique opportunity to get a look at secluded areas of the Adirondacks that not everyone has access to.
No matter which rail biking tour you choose, you'll find yourself crossing over rivers, viewing wildlife, and biking through the serene Adirondack forests that will leave you in awe.
When it comes to riding the rails with Adirondack Scenic Rail Bikes, you'll have quite a few different options to choose from.
Each rail bike seats four people, which means that you can bring three other friends or family members along for the ride with you or share your experience with another party of fellow adventurers! Appealing to the masses, you'll find everyone from biking enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers to history buffs and those looking to try something new biking along the Adirondack Scenic Railroad.
Combining the best of both worlds, you can choose to take on a full day adventure that includes both riding the train along the Adirondack Scenic Railroad twice in one day
and riding the rails with the bikes.
If you're ready to spend an entire day taking on an outdoor adventure, then this choice is for you! With the Railbiking & Scenic Train Package you'll need to set aside at least 9-hours of your day.
With the Railbiking & Scenic Train Package, you'll board the train in Utica and ride to Thendara - where you'll then get out and ride the rail bikes.
Giving you a taste of what's to come, you'll love getting your daily dose of nostalgia as you ride on the trains of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad.
After the 6-mile rail biking adventure, you'll get to comfortably ride the train back to Utica to conclude your unforgettable day full of fun.
After biking away from Thendara on a one-way adventure, you'll find a Railcar Transporter waiting for you to take you back to the train station for the last leg of your trip. Two train rides and a rail biking adventure all in one day? This is one epic package.
If you're looking to keep things more simple, you can also opt for their Roundtrip or One-Way Railbiking Tours. You can choose to leave from Thendara and ride to the Carter Station or vice versa.
Out of all the packages that the Adirondack Scenic Rail Bikes offer, their One-Way from Thendara is the most popular of all. Both One-Way packages will take up an hour and a half of your time and will have you biking a total of 6-miles. If you decide to take on the Round-Trip Package, you can expect things to take 3 and a half hours long and will include a stop at the Carter Station where you can enjoy a break before heading back.
