Old Forge, NY Trail Report 2-15-12

We woke up this morning to an inch or so of new snow and we've had snow in the air all morning. One of those snows, that at the end of the day you'll have another inch or two. I'll take what ever Old Man Winter wants to send our way, as long at it's FROZEN! Everybody came back with a smile on their face last night and they all headed back out this morning again. Even the guests that where scheduled to check out this morning, took a short ride before checking out. They said yes there is some ugly out there, but they don't regret coming up. Like I've been saying, there's riding to be had, it just may not all be picture perfect, like most of us are accustomed to seeing in Old Forge.

Here's Today's Video for.....

  6. Nice video, but when the Brantingham group was on the lake, I could smell their hifax burning from here....the smell that is "oh so familiar to us." I wish Shotgun Dan would tell us what he did with Pinky Doo.

    1. Hi,

      Next week being Pres. week you may find that more places will be open during the week. I wouldn't worry about finding someplace to eat, as there is always at least one or two restaurants open even in the slowest of seasons.

  20. Has anybody road up to the Adirondack Hotel? I know theres a long stretch of road from Forked Lake to Long Lake. Whats it like? Is Forked Lake about as far as you want to go?

  21. Coming up this weekend with family, can someone give me an idea of a loop that I can make that will keep us on snow. Dont need much more than a 60 mile loop.
    Thanks

  24. Mike,
    you can put 60 miles on easy just doing the Old Forge trail system.

  25. I was at the Adirondack holtel last Sat.The road was ok they had the shoulders plowed back.Just a note there are a couple of small open water spots at the very north end of raquette towards canoe carry.No problem getting across them also a couple wet spots on forked also which are no problem.Take the power line trail to the longview hotel to get on long lake. Stay of the north end of lake open channel that is acroos the street from the hotel. You can from there take the trail to newcomb to indian lake and back to the moose river plains.Iam sure this is the biggest loop you can take.

  27. Hahaha, right now this thread looks like a combination of Jerry Springer/Dr. Phil/Cops and Snowmobile Magazine all mixed into 1.....Steve, we might have the makings of a good reality show, filmed at your motel. Ticket Tim is alive! Let it eat.
