Floodwood Mountain Bike and Snowmobile Trails

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

The marked route begins on a snowmobile trail and travels around a network of small wilderness ponds, with rock and pine-clad islands and conifer and deciduous forest.

Begin from Floodwood Road access, head south on the snowmobile trail. Very soon, the trail joins one of several canoe portage stretches on this route. The trail passes Polliwog Pond on the left and Horseshoe Pond on the right. After 2 miles, go straight through the intersection at the canoe carry between Follensby Clear Pond and Fish Creek. Continue approximately 0.8 mile more to a paved road at Fish Creek Campground. Another quick right leads you back onto the snowmobile trail for the return trip to Floodwood Road. This part of the loop is rough and travels along Fish Creek, passing Little Square Pond. Just beyond, the trail arrives at an intersection on the left that connects with the Otter Hollow Trail across a bridge. Here the trail heads northeast around Floodwood Pond, crosses wet drainage and rejoins with Floodwood Road near west tip of Middle Pond. Turn right and ride less than a mile back to starting point.
