Northwood Cabins

Can we talk...

Marcy wanted me to let you know, the weather is perfect and the fall colors are starting to appear but time is running out. We have less then three weeks until we close for the season. We have a couple of cabins available this Friday due to cancellations, other then that the weekends are pretty much full. Mid week is wide open, avoid the crowds, call in sick, Marcy said she would write you an excuse.

She's not mad...just disappointed because you haven't called yet.

Northwood Cabins

You always find it in the last place you look.

Guests often ask about hikes they can do in the area. There are the obvious ones, like the Tupper Triad, Ampersand and Panther Mt's, which are just down the road. But sometimes they are looking for something a little easier and closer to "home".

We make a point of not recommending hikes or paddles that we haven't done ourselves so we have not had a good answer to this question. That was until yesterday. We had guests bring bikes and they were interested in a trail ride close by. Luckily, just this week we had a chance to explore the Deer Pond Loop, which in fact right behind the motel.

Portions of this trail make for excellent bike riding, as it follows Old Wawbeek Road. This section of the road was abandoned when the "new" highway, today's Route 3, opened up in the mid 1930s. In fact the Northwood Cabins started out on Wawbeek Rd, and were moved to their present location when the highway was completed sometime in 1938 or 39.

The trail can be accessed from two points on Route 3/30, right across the road from the Crusher boat launch, or a mile or so further east at an established parking area. You can also park at the point where Old Wawbeek ends to the west. Lastly, there is an parking area on Route 30 on the way to Fish Creek SP.

A nice 6 or 7 mile loop would see you head out from the Northwood Cabins west, turning right on to Dugal Rd, which includes excellent views of Mt Morris, as well as a very pretty display of the Stations of the Cross placed on a hill above the road.

Turn right onto Old Wawbeek and you will pass Blueberry Hill Rd, if I was looking to pick wild blueberries in season this would be a good place to start. At the gate keep going straight, making sure to respect the private property you will pass along the way.

You are now on the abandon road bed. You will pass large rock formations, glacier erratics (random boulders), wetland (where we are told moose have been seen) and stands of very mature pines.

You will pass connector trails for the Deer Pond Loop trail, we don't recommend taking you bike down those, but you can add a hike to your bike ride.

Continuing on the roadbed you will arrive at the parking lot on Route 3/30, from there turn right and head back to the Northwood Cabins. But before you get back you can stop at the Crusher for a swim to cool off.
