All aboard! Enjoy a beautiful, one-of-a-kind ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad with our rail bike tour from Carter Station to Thendara Station. Grab a seat on our custom and brand new rail bikes and get ready to ride the rails!

On this 6-mile bike trip through the Adirondacks, you ride on the rails, crossing over rivers and streams, taking in the stunning natural beauty of Upstate New York, and keeping a lookout for some of our local wildlife. This bike tour is one-way, meaning you enjoy a speeder or train ride back to Carter Station on one of our historic trains.

The train tickets to your starting location are included in the price. Duration may vary with pedaling speed, but most of our rail bike tours on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad are about an hour.

Each rail bike seats four people. We ask you to please make note that if you are not purchasing tickets in groups of four, you may share a bike with another party. This allows us to accommodate groups of all sizes.
