    Adirondack and Catskill mountains

    Which are the best roads in these? Will travel thru them on the way to KOTF. I have done some already, looking for any input. Thanks.

    the best of the ADK is n/e of old forge

    OF is approx. 2.25 hrs from KOTF


    Lake George area attracts car clubs and riding clubs


    last time I was there I was chasing 5 corvettes in an Nissan sentra, the g/f previous car LOL


    route 3 or 28 might be what u r looking for - check out google maps

    NY is underhunted due to aging out of people that want to hunt and cull heards of deer - be safe - too early for wet leaves but as u know lots of pebbles outside the white line - if ya want a crazy ride take a logging road - whoa nelly - I did 22 miles on dirt and loose gravel by mistake from Mansville to the tug Hill

    I was skeered at 1st then got ballsy until I rounded a corner with a payloader backing into the logging rd

    enjoy the ride

    Rt 30 going south of Amsterdam is good. The run by the Pepacton reservoir is very nice!

    Concur 10 and 30 are very nice roads.

    Sadly with all the rains we had, some of the wonders will not be seen in the reservoirs, Church steeples, and telephone poles still extant from the flooded towns seen rising from the water in periods of drought.

    Some movies made in the flooded towns, the scenes of swimming through the church …… WOW!.

    23A if you can work it in to your route is nice as well, skirts the Catskill Park, a very twisty road, past the highest waterfall in NY state, a half mile ramble, a nice place for a stop and stretch of the leg to the base of the falls.


    Through Palenville, which can lead you to route 32 South, which the campground is on through lil towns. Or to the Thruway, a faster route, take the New Paltz exit for KOTF.

    I'm either going to KOTF from Waterville via Rt. 20 to 145, 87 to 32 or Rt 23 to the later.
    Hauling the enclosed trailer, bikes & 1/2 a house load of stuff I wanna avoid hills and braking curves as much as possible. Flat and boring straight slab is in for this venture.

    Denis,
    With KOTF this year down in the Catskills region it's 3hr 5M from my place, Old Forge (just a busy tourist town, Rt. 28 has very limited passing) is another hour North of me.

    Ride safe, catch up with ya' on Wednesday!
