Written Directions

Take NY 18 & 48 between Bloomingdale and Wilmington, NY. If you access it from the west, from NY 3, most of the route will be ascending.

Scenery

Road is north of Whiteface Mountain and follows several small streams. It connects with NY 431, the toll road to the top of Whiteface.

Drive Enjoyment

Since it follows streams it is full of twists and turns. None of them are extreme and you can often see several in your line of sight. There is one sharp turn to line up for a bridge crossing.

Tourism Opportunities

There are no amenities on this 18 mile route. At each end are small town with services.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

If the weather is clear the Whiteface toll road, NY431, is a nice side trip, which includes an elevator ride to the top of the mountain. Views can be spectacular.

Spent the week riding the Adirondacks in 2017. This road was one of the highlights. Not the type of road to hustle through. Take your time and enjoy the river scenery.

I submitted this route to MCR a few years ago. This route takes you to the Whiteface Mountain access road. That road is worth the trip, if the weather is clear. From the summit of Whiteface you can see for miles.
