Bald Mountain

Rondaxe Mountain is also known as Bald Mountain. It is perhaps one of the most popular hiking destination in the Old Forge Region. This 2-mile round-trip hike takes you to the top of Bald Mountain, with beautiful views overlooking the Fulton Chain of Lakes. A climb up the fire tower awards you with views of Blue Mountain and, on a clear day, the High Peaks. This hike starts off with a moderate incline, then ascends rather steeply with some rocky ridge walking before reaching the summit.

Beaver Lake Trail

The Beaver Lake Trail offers a pleasant hiking or biking trail that is just under 5 miles and is relatively easy. The trail is set on a dirt road along a lakeshore that was home to a private estate over 100 years ago. Beaver Lake Trail is located in Inlet; to get to the trail head, take Otter Brook Road which is off of Moose River Plains Road. Drive for about 1 mile and cross the bridge over the South Branch Moose River. Once you cross the bridge, turn right on the first side road. South Branch Moose River will meet the bridge over Otter Brook; the trail starts by crossing this bridge.

Cascade Lake & Falls

Cascade Lake offers both on and off water adventure – enjoy canoeing, kayaking and fishing on the lake or enjoy hiking on its surrounding 5.5 mile loop. While hiking, you will come across a narrow waterfall on the inlet stream. Reach the trailhead on the right by traveling about 1 mile on Big Moose Road in the town of Eagle Bay.
