Unpaved road leads to fishing paradise

CARLTON – There aren’t too many left these days: unpaved public roads. But there are some in Orleans County.

Clark Mills Road in Carlton has shunned asphalt. The winding road is on the west side of the Oak Orchard River, which happens to be one the Orleans County’s top tourist attractions.

Many places in their tourism epicenter would likely dress up such a road, insisting on fresh pavement and all kinds of amenities. But I hope Clark Mills stays unpaved. It adds to the rural charm.

I’d like to find more unpaved public roads in the county. If you know of any, please send me a note at tom@orleanshub.com.
