Gore Mountain offers summer and fall Downhill Mountain biking with more than 1,700 feet of vertical.
Several fishing charter services can be found in the Lake George Area, providing guided expeditions to fishing hot spots. Fish for landlocked Salmon, Lake Trout and Small Mouth Bass with an expert guide or simply head out on your own and cast a line.
