RECREATION

Discover the Adirondack Park  - www.VisitAdirondacks.com

Birding
See the loons, ospreys and other birds around Moss Lake near Eagle Bay. Near rivers and streams (all three branches of the Moose River, along the bridges at Rondaxe, Green Bridge Road, North Street, and at Lock-n-Dam.) one might see any of these birds: Herons, Hawks, Mergansers, Pewee’s, Junco’s, Flycatchers, Kingfisher’s, and Swallows.  Near ponds and lakes (Nicks, Rondaxe, Moss, Cascade) you might see Loons, Osprey, Hawks, Eagles, Woodpeckers and Grouse. Along the roadsides, look for  Owls, Woodpeckers , Turkeys, Thrushes, Jays, and Chickadees.

Canoeing, Kayaking and Stand-Up Paddle Boards
Old Forge, Paddling Capital of the Adirondacks, offers great paddling opportunities for canoers, kayakers, and stand-up paddle (SUP) board enthusiasts. Bring your own craft or rent one from one of several area shops. Watercrafts, supplies, guides and transportation are available for day trips or longer excursions.

Old Forge is embraced by the North and Middle branches of the Moose River, offering wilderness paddling opportunities immediately accessible from area villages.  The North Branch offers winding, backcounty scenery flowing with the current from Rondaxe Bridge near Rondaxe Lake.  Deer, otters, beavers and Great Blue Herons are frequently seen on the 12-mile excursion which typically takes about six hours.  Approximately four miles downstream from Rondaxe is North Street Bridge, another popular put-in spot on the outskirts of Old Forge.  All of the same scenery and wildlife is available, and small, sandy beaches provide picnic spots.  This North Branch route comprises the last four hours of the Rondaxe trip.  The Middle Branch of the Moose, flowing from the dam at Old Forge Pond, joins the North Branch near the Thendara Bridge in Old Forge. The gorgeous river continues meandering through the Black River Wild Forest to Minnehaha, then to Singing Waters, where the river gathers speed.  The Moose spills over small rock gardens through McKeever, then establishes itself as one of the premier whitewater resources in the Northeast.  Class IV and Class V rapids provide experienced paddlers Adirondack whitewater adventures on the Lower Moose.

Additional flat water paddling opportunities abound on the Fulton Chain of Lakes, originating in Old Forge, and on Big Moose Lake.  Extensive canoeing and kayak touring is available on Stillwater Resevoir, northwest of Big Moose and Eagle Bay.

The Thendara Golf Course is a an 18-hole par 72, Donald Ross-Designed Championship Golf Course, once played by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Travino, Chi Chi Rodriguez and a number of other famous golfers. The course is cut right out of the natural beauty of the Central Adirondacks.

These  trails are closed during Hunting Season and Snowmobiling Season (September 14 to April 1). They follow roads, old railroad beds and snowmobile trails with gentle grades and many scenic views, making this sport fun for beginners and a great aerobic workout for serious riders.

The Maple Ridge to McCauley Mountain trail begins at a kiosk where the TOBIE trail runs parallel to Park Avenue in Old Forge. 

Bike and Rail Package-- available in summer into September.
This train offers bikers the opportunity to ride the train north to Carter station or Big Moose, then ride their bicycles back to Old Forge.
