New York State has four long-distance trails that traverse the state. These include the Adirondack Loop Trail loop; the Atlantic Coast Trail across southern New York; the Northern Tier Trail that runs from coast to coast and east-west across New York; and the Historic Underground Railroad Trail along the western state border.
Adirondacks Loop Trail Map. Adventure Cycling Association. When ridden in a counter-clockwise direction, the Adirondack Park Loop travels from Schenectady north, crossing into Adirondack Park just north of Saratoga Springs. Adirondack Park is the largest publicly protected area in the lower forty-eight states, greater in size than Yellowstone, Everglades, Glacier and Grand Canyon National Park combined. Passing through Ticonderoga, the route hugs the western shore of Lake Champlain as it continues north. At Port Henry there is an optional spur to continue north to Port Kent, to connect to a ferry to Burlington, Vermont. The main route continues west through Lake Placid, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. The route can be somewhat hilly in the park, with climbs ranging up to 1,500 feet. The route uses lightly traveled roads with minimal shoulders. Paved shoulders prevail where traffic is moderate.

Underground Railroad Bike Route
Historic Underground Railroad Bike Route. Adventure Cycling Association. Mobile, AL to Owen Sound, Ontario. 2058 miles. The Underground Railroad Bicycle Route honors the bravery of those that fled bondage and those that provided shelter. This route passes points of interest and historic sites along a 2,100-mile corridor. Beginning in Mobile, Alabama - a busy port for slavery during the pre-civil war era - the route goes north following rivers through Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Waterways, as well as the North Star, were often used by freedom seekers as a guide in their journeys to escape slavery.
Upon crossing into Ohio, the route leaves the river to head inland toward Lake Erie and enters Canada at the Peace Bridge near Buffalo, New York. In Ontario, the route circumvents the shores of Lake Ontario and ends at Owen Sound, a town founded by freedom seekers 150 years ago.
