Hiking and Multi-Use Herkimer County Trails.

Some trails may be designed for multi-use, which means during the summer, they could be a combination of hiking or bicycling. Please be sure to check before you start out biking to be sure it is allowed on that particular trail.

From the intersection of State Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Eagle Bay the trailhead park-ing for Moss Lake Trail is 2.1 miles on the left side of the road. Additional handicapped parking is 0.10 of a mile further down the road on the same side.


A wheelchair accessible platform overlooking the lake is a short distance from the handicapped parking lot by turning right onto the trail. The Bubb Lake Trail joins the loop trail near the SE corner of the lake.



The entire loop around the lake is 2.5 miles.



The trail has DEC yellow markers for both hiking and skiing and is an easy hike along a mostly level wide trail. From the trail register, turn left along the trail. The trail crosses a clearing and proceeds through woods. At 0.5 mile the trail crosses a bridge at the lake’s main inlet. At 0.7 mile the Bubb Lake comes in from the left. The side trail to Bubb Lake is 0.7 mile. The trail continues around the lake and at 1.2 miles crosses a bridge over the lake’s outlet. The trail continues around the lake returning to the point of origin.
