DEC Adirondack Outdoor Recreation Bulletin January 14, 2021

 DEC Adirondack Outdoor Recreation Bulletin January 14, 2021

Perkins Clearing/Speculator Tree Farm Easement:

Snowmobile trails on both tracts are now open.

Old Route 8 between Cave Hill Road and Robbs Creek Road in Perkins Clearing is currently a shared logging road and snowmobile trail. Snowmobilers must drive slowly, stay on the groomed trail, and use caution when driving near logging trucks and equipment.

Moose River Plains Complex: The entrance gates to the Moose River Plains on Limekiln Lake-Cedar River Road are now open to snowmobile traffic only. Conditions remain poor due to minimal snow accumulation. The roads remain closed to public motor vehicles for the winter season.

Snow Accumulation: The following provides current snowpack depths in inches as of 01/05/21 at a selection of Adirondack locations. Snow accumulation data is collected every other week. Additional data and interactive maps are available on the National Weather Service website.

Northwoods Club Road, Minerva, Essex County: 7.7 inches

Goodnow Flow Road, Newcomb, Essex County: 7.6 inches

Tahawus/Upper Works, Newcomb, Essex County: 7.8 inches

Blue Ridge Road, Newcomb, Essex County: 7.5 inches

Elk Lake Road, North Hudson, Essex County: 8.7 inches

Lake Colden, Essex County: 11.4 inches

Cedar River Road, Indian Lake, Hamilton County: 7.8 inches

Sagamore Road, Long Lake, Hamilton County: 7 inches

Haskell Road, Ohio, Herkimer County: 9.6 inches

North Lake Road, Ohio, Herkimer County: 9.7 inches

Ice Safety: A minimum of three to four inches of solid ice is the general rule for safety. Ice thickness, however, is not uniform on any body of water. Learn more about ice safety.

Snowmobiling: Some seasonal access roads will transition to snowmobile use once sufficient snowpack accumulates. Check local club, county, and state webpages and resources, including the NYSSA Snowmobile Webmap, for up-to-date snowmobile trail information.
