There is a large beaver dam just downstream that has altered the water levels necessitating that the landing moving just downstream from where the original one was. It is still a very good landing. You must slalom through about 10 rods of red & jack pine trees. Then there is a choice. Either go left to a 2.5 foot drop, or go right and meet up with the old trail in what will likely be a wet & muddy trail. Other than that is is a very nice flat trail through a mature stand of red pines. Watch for rocks lurking below the surface once you put in on Big Moose.
