NY 30 from Paul Smiths NY south to the intersection of NY 30 and 3, west of Saranac Lake.
This section of NY 30 serpentines thru numerous Adirondack lakes. Along the lakes are some open areas that allow for long range mountain views.
Wide paved shoulders and rhythmic sweepers make it easy to roll on the throttle. Just be aware with lakes come lake homes and driveways. In some sections the line of sight allows you to plan for several curves in succession. In July 2017 the pavement was brand new.
The road is a few miles west of Saranac Lake, which has plenty of amenities.
