Moose River Plains

Moose River Plains

The Moose River Recreation Area, including the Moose River Plains, contains about 50,000 acres of public lands crossed by more than 40 miles of old dirt logging roads. Some of them lead to nowhere (dead ends), but provide challenging rides. There are also 27 miles of trails, 140 primitive tent sites, and a firetower on Wakely Mountain. The roads are rough dirt or dirt and grass, and the 23-mile through-road, especially, is used by vehicles as well as mountain bikers. Some of the pitches are steep, but the area is fairly flat by Adirondack standards. You must register at either the Limekiln or Cedar River Road gate, but access is free.
