The area around this bridge is the favorite spot of fishermen. Off the beaten path, there are many open sandy areas for casting.
This is the North Branch of the Moose River. Bridges and crossings along the bike trails off of North Street in Old Forge offer hundreds of spots for calm water paddling and fishing. Clear water and sandy weed beds are home to a variety of species.
By parking a second car at North Street Bridge, 1 mile from Route 28 near the red, white, and blue bridge in Old Forge, a one-way paddle is possible, and avoids the portage around Indian Rapids. This is an excellent spot for the start of a Mountain Bike Journey on the Town Of Webb Trail System, which gives access to 100 miles of loops. This is also a great location for a long-distance family bird hike along the old gravel roadways of the Old Forge Trail System.
Direct access for parking/fishing and canoe put in.
24 mile round trip paddle to Old Forge and back.
Take Route 28 south from Inlet for 6.5 miles and turn right on Rondaxe Road. Parking is a sandy pull off on the left just before the bridge.
Winter access is not recommended, as this is a snowmobile trail in the winter.
