Enjoy the natural beauty of the Adirondack mountains at your own leisurely pace as you pedal your railbike along the scenic rails between the Thendara and Carter stations. Your Railbike Adventure begins in Thendara, where you will board our special railcar people transporter. You will ride the transporter for three miles towards Carter station until you reach Mile Post Marker H61. There you will get off the transporter and onto your railbike. You will then pedal your bike for three miles to the Carter station. At Carter Station, you will have a chance to stretch your legs while your railbike is turned around, after which you will pedal three miles back to the transporter. You will finish your journey as you ride the transporter back to the Thendara station.
