Rogers Island Bicycle Loop
This strategic area on the Hudson River was third only to New York and Boston in population at the time of the French and Indian Wars. Learn why and all about its unique history at the Visitor Center and Museum where this tour starts on the western edge of Ft. Edward. The route goes west to the town of Corinth after a steep climb out of the valley around mile point 11. Founded in the Revolutionary War years Corinth became a major lumber center by 1810 when it had between 30 and 40 sawmills. Today it functions as a gateway to the Adirondacks and maybe you will be surprised to see the Hudson River flowing by the town parks miles west of where you started.
If you wanted a shorter ride or wanted to miss the steep hill then a turn in Wilton will shorten the trip to about 31 miles. The last 7 miles of the route are north along the Hudson River going back to Rogers Island.
