Why choose a trail at Moss Lake?

Moss Lake (60°42′S 45°37′W) is the southernmost lake in Paternoster Valley on Signy Island, in the South Orkney Islands off Antarctica. It was so named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee because a luxuriant stand of moss covers the deeper part of the lake.

Moss Lake is a beautiful, serene place to spend a day or weekend. It's located in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York and is perfect for fishing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. The lake is also great for hiking and bird watching. There are several trails that lead around the lake and through the woods.
