Limekiln Lake backcountry trail

Limekiln Lake backcountry trail

This trail does not have a trail sign at the beginning off the Moose River Pains Road; you will need to look closely for a trail disk on a tree. The trail is quite obscured by growth but once on it, it's easy to follow. This trail seems to get very little use, but is a nice trail nonetheless.

From the trailhead, you will drop slightly and quickly come to a crossing of a beaver-flooded creek. The crossing is a bit tough as the bridge has become part of the beaver dam, but take your time and it shouldn't be an issue. The opposite side is a bit wet and tough to follow for a ways but soon becomes easier. Several areas of wetlands can get flooded from beaver use where the trail comes too close to the creek, but with a bit of care it can be navigated. You will reach the shore of Limekiln Lake at 2.7 miles from your car.


From the intersection of Route 28 and Limekiln Road in Inlet, follow Limekiln Road to the Moose River Plains Road. Follow the Moose River Plains Road for around 3.5 miles to the trailhead on the right. There is no sign, so look for disk on a tree. Limited parking.
