This loop is grand in many ways, but especially the scenery. Much of it goes through the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest area, with a crossing of the Boreas River and the views along Boreas Road. Area attractions include the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves on the Pottersville-Olmstedville Road (CR29), and a buffalo farm 4 miles from Route 9, in North Hudson.
Bike the Blue Ridge Road/County Highway 2B west to east, and take advantage of the downhill grade.
There are services in Schroon Lake, Pottersville, Olmstedville, and Minerva.
