I was thinking the other day it’s been six years since I’ve last been out to Woodhull Lake in the Black River Wild Forest It’s a nice, mostly wilderness reservoir that is accessible most of the way by a one lane gravel road.

There are several roadside campsites along the two mile road, mostly very rustic and somewhat overgrown as they are lightly used.

The lake is quiet, especially on weekdays, and often very placid and quite clear.

There is a nice lean-to at Wolf Landing.

And it’s a nice hike back to Remsen Falls on Moose River.

Good fishing on the reservoir, and you might even spot a deer or two.

I’m thinking of getting back up there again this summer..

1.75 mile hike from NY 28 in Otter Lake is Bear Pond in the Black River Wild Forest.

Located in Otter Lake is a great new trail utilizing an old woods road to scenic Brewer Lake inside the Black River Wild Forest. The hike is a pleasant, easy two mile walk on a gentle grade to the shore of Brewer Lake. The trail is near NY 28 along a state land access road that takes you across the tracks of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad.

At the end there is a campsite and old rowboat.

Map: Moss Lake

Map: Moss Lake

This small lake, nestled at the foot of a steep mountain, has seven designated campsites along its eastern shore and is encircled by an old bridle trail. It provides a beautiful and quiet half day paddle. Be on the lookout for nesting osprey and loons. From downtown Inlet, take Route 28 south one mile and then go right onto Big Moose Road. Travel three miles to the parking area on your left. The put-in is 1/10th of a mile along a short, flat hike to the right around the pond at the NYS DEC ADA access dock and beach site. Two campsites are designated as accessible, each is complete with a picnic table, privy, fire ring and tent pad. An observation deck with built-in benches located on the lake shore can be reached by the accessible trail providing a spectacular view of the lake.
