Why not begin your Western Adirondacks adventure by paddling for an hour or two in a kayak or canoe along the Moose River with Tickner’s Canoes ? The natural beauty and tranquility of Moose River is a great way to get away from it all and spend time with family and friends relaxing and paddling while viewing the abundant wildlife.


.. The stunning natural beauty of the Western Adirondacks entices nature lovers with weekend getaway options like no other.

For an even more unique adventure, Tickner’s partners with the Adirondack Scenic Railroad  Thendara Station to offer an exclusive River & Rail trip down the pristine Middle Branch. After a 7-mile paddle, you can take the railway back to town – and they will take your kayak or canoe, too! 

You are sure to be hungry after your time on the water, so when you get back to Old Forge, why  not pop into Billy's Italian American Restaurant  for some well-earned seafood or pasta accompanied by a refreshing glass of beer or wine or try the Mountainside Smokehouse & Grill  for some rib-sticking barbecue and Southern cuisine.

Then get rested up for another day of fun at  one of the area's accommodation options that include campgrounds, motels and rustic lodges like the Adirondack Old Forge Lodge or Big Moose Inn Hotel and Tavern  located on idyllic Big Moose Lake.

Let your adventure continue because the Moose River/Old Forge area is great for picnics, swimming, biking and lounging on small, sandy beaches. And don't forget that New York's largest water theme park, the Enchanted Forest Water Safari, is right next door!
