For a gentle and pleasant walk, the 2.5-mile loop around Moss Lake is a great option conveniently located off Big Moose Road in the Eagle Bay area. Winding through the Fulton Chain Wild Forest, the trail around the lake is gradual with minor ascents and descents along the way. Additionally, it can also be biked during drier conditions and when there's a nice base of snow during the winter months, it's an excellent loop for skiing & snowshoeing.
At the halfway mark around the lake lies a bridge that has beautiful panoramic views. We always make a point to take some pictures on the bridge - we’ve been creating a nice little collection of photos from this spot over the years! There are several primitive campsites and a nice beach area on the shore of the lake that can be explored along the way. There’s an island out in the middle of the lake with a few tall trees that make for a particularly picturesque scene.
