A great spot for a family destination
Catlin Bay is located a simple 1.1 mile hike along the Northville/Placid Trail at a scenic location along the Northeast Shore of Long Lake.
Distance Round Trip:
Family of Four with Kids: 45 minutes to bay
Experienced Hiker: 30 minutes to bay
Inexperienced Hiker: 45 minutes to bay
From the intersection of Route 28 and Route 30 in the Town of Long Lake follow Route 28N toward Newcomb. Continue on 28N for about 3-miles to Tarbell Hill Road on the left. Follow Tarbell Hill Road for about 1-mile to the parking for the Northville/Placid Trail on the right. The trail is 100-feet further, just over the hill on the right.
This makes for an excellent snowshoe destination for the entire family. While the trail gets very little use in winter it makes for a nice winter experience through a very attractive area.
