A multi use trail on NYS Forest Preserve land with access to a scenic spot on the Moose River and also connecting to Nicks lake / Bisby Road Trails. The trail is mostly easy to intermediate multi use double track. However, there are a few steeper, rutted trail sections that less experienced riders may want to walk.

Access Info

The trail can be accessed from either the Green Street Bridge parking area or the Bisby Road parking area. Green Street Bridge is approximately 0.6 miles from the Adirondack Scenic Railroad Station on Rt 28 in Thendara. The Bisby Road Trail parking area is approximately 1.5 miles from the Adirondack Scenic Railroad Station on Rt 28 in Thendara. The trail can also be shuttled from the Bisby Road trail head or even the McCauley Mountain Ski Area Lodge if a larger ride including nearby Maple Ridge / McCauley trails is planned.
