If you're looking for a relaxing experience in the Adirondacks, look no further than Eagle Bay. Sightseeing is what the area is known for, but trail biking is also available for those looking to get in a little exercise.

After you wake up at one of the charming local inns such as Big Moose Inn, prepare to take a boat tour on the Stillwater Reservoir. As you are floating along, be sure to soak in the natural beauty of the area along with the wildlife that is active year round. In the afternoon you can take a trip over to Thendara and hitch a ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad for a train tour around the region (they offer different length tours, from hour long to daylong).

To take in even more of the beauty of the region, you have your choice of bike trails. Each trail offers a unique view of the area, with many following the shoreline of area lakes. Trails vary in length offering you the choice of a shorter, roughly one-hour ride or an entire afternoon of pedaling.
