Npt over Coldriver


Moose Creek Suspension Bridge: This bridge on the Northville-Placid Trail between Shattuck Clearing and Cold River will be closed Monday, August 15 through Friday, August 19. DEC and National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) Northeast will be working to repair the bridge. Hikers can rock hop across the stream downstream from the bridge or wade on sand upstream of bridge.

Ouluska Brook Bridge: The bridge over Ouluska Brook on the Northville-Placid Trail has collapsed into the brook. Due to low water conditions crossing the brook is still possible.

Cold River Bridge: Some boards are broken on the suspension bridge over the Cold River on the Northville-Placid Trail. Use caution when crossing.

In a normal season, the Cold River crossing at Shattuck Clearing is about knee or thigh deep. This year, I bet it's even lower.

I was just there recently and I didn't go down to the water's edge next to the bridge, but down by CR #3 LT it was low enough that I'm sure you could find a route to rock-hop the entire way across.

Moose Creek Bridge

Bridge is now open as of noon 8/19/16.
Crew was just finishing up repairs.

Also looked like recent repairs to Cold River Suspension Bridge,
Crossed both at that time. Looked solid!
