Mountain Biking Adventures

High Peaks Mountain Guides is conveniently right next door to our awesome full service bike shop, High Peaks Cyclery. Our premier Lake Placid location offers excellent opportunities to ride some of the best trails in the Adirondacks. With well over 20K of world class, renowned single track trails right out of our front door, we offer something for everyone. To hone your skills you could sign up for one of our skills lesson workshops. If you want to go on a multi day adventure or even just want to get a kick ass local ride check out what we have to offer in Tours. We also love to work with camp groups and occasionally like to have a few “ Fun Not Fear Dirt Camps “ of own.


Paddle Sports

With thousands of lakes, ponds and rivers to choose from, your Adirondack paddling experience can be unique every time. Our guided trips focus on the waters in and round Lake Placid, but we also can go to The St. Regis Canoe area, the Saranac Lakes or we can create a custom itinerary for your outing. Let us take you to an island on Middle Saranac Lake for lunch or for a cruise around Lake Placid.

We provide shuttle services, outfitting and trip planning for all types of water explorations. Our guide service can get you out on the water for half day, full day, overnight and multi-day outings. We also offer a two hour introductory course for beginners who want to develop basic skills to feel comfortable out on the open water.


Rock Climbing

The climbing opportunities are incredible in the park. There is every kind of climbing possible - roadside, back country, mountain bike, water approaches. Steep, Slab, Overhanging. Crack, face, both! Its the best. We are proud to have some of the most seasoned, professional, guides found within the blue lines on our team. They are stoked to share to local knowledge and skills whether it be a first time family outing to a remote back country adventure…
