As a resident of the area (Glens Falls) I can tell you there are very few public trails for OHV use, especially around Lake George.

If you can come up again when Mettowee is open again, that is a ton of fun.

Adirondack Jeeps might be helpful but I recall reading that they don't tend to post good off roading sites for fear of them being over exposed. It is also my under standing that many of the places they wheel are on private property and open only to club members.

This is from a post on their site:

"Hey there, Welcome to the forum. I live right around the corner from Bodyguard. There are actually a lot of Jeep guys and girls in the Albany area... sadly, there aren't any trails.

Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, it's kind of been policy that we don't discuss detailed trail specs like locations, directions, and specific names in the public forum, mainly because everyone can read here, including those who would seek to use that information against us, and have said trails closed down. Believe it or not, It's happened before...

If you stick around and check in the trail rides section there are a lot of pick up rides that go on, and there is always the Mettowee Off Road park in Granville. We do a 4x4 101 course at least once a month in association with Saratoga Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram too. I usually lead those, I think there was going to be one more for the season but I haven't heard of a date yet so stay tuned. If you're interested in the 4x4 101, drop Michele a PM.

Happy Wheeling, hope to see you on the trail soon."
