A recreation path linking the Adirondack communities of Thendara, Old Forge, Big Moose, Inlet and Eagle Bay (TOBIE), the trail is bicycle and pedestrian pathway connecting the communities along a 16 miles from Thendara to Inlet. The pathway utilizes both paved and off-road sections, including an abandoned spur line from the Remsen-Lake Placid Rail Corridor running from the Adirondack Scenic Railroad Station in Thendara to the lakefront in Old Forge. Along this section, the project also involved the construction of a pedestrian bridge over the Moose River where a railroad bridge once stood.

The portion of the TOBIE Trail from North Street, Old Forge to Rondaxe is CLOSED during hunting season (Sept 15th). The Trail remains open from South Rondaxe Road to Eagle Bay and Inlet.
