Trail Overview

This is the entrance trail to Moose River Plains, which consists of miles of easily accessible smooth dirt and gravel trails with lots of amazing scenery, wildlife, and primitive camping spots along the way. This first segment is an easy ride through the natural beauty of the Adirondack State Park. It has some gradual elevation changes both up and down that provide some decent views through the trees in some parts. As you travel through you will be surrounded by the sight and smell of lush pines and you will run along a stream for a segment of the trail. This area is especially beautiful in the peak season of fall and is a great place to go for a drive or camp to see the vivid orange and reds of the fall season. Some important things to note: this can be driven by just about any type of vehicle, but low-clearance vehicles should note the possibility of protruding rocks from the ground that may be hard to see. Cell reception is also not available along this route. No permit is required, but sign-in is encouraged especially if staying overnight. No motorcycles or ATVs are permitted. Read all signage and respect rules and wildlife. Don't litter.


There is loose and hard-packed dirt with no washboarding, as well as gravel sections and spots for mud and shallow water to collect. It's very easy to follow trail.
