Bog River Trail

From the gate, pass through and hike along an old road to an old bridge over the Bog River. Cross the bridge and quickly come to a second intersection. This intersection is not as obvious, head more left. This trail is quite obvious but doesn’t get a ton of use from hikers, it is more of a ski trail, and not marked. The trail is rather flat for most of its course. There is one decent hill you will ascend and a long descent will bring you down to the Shore of the Bog River. Herd paths follow the shore in both directions. Be aware that this trail is very wet in sections along the old carriage road, especially under spring conditions. 

Trailhead Location: 

From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 30 in the Village of Tupper Lake follow Route 30 toward Long Lake. Continue to Route 421 (Horseshoe Lake Road) on your left. Follow Route 421 for about 0.1 miles to a yellow state gate on the left, park here.
