Cold River Cable Car Crossing

The paddling guide Adirondack Canoe Waters: North Flow mentions that while paddling the Cold River Canyon below Duck Hole, the remains of a cable car crossing can be spotted along the river. Has anyone here ever found these remains? Even better: Does anyone have a GPS point, or at least a general sense of where they might be located?

In looking through old topo maps, the only evidence I can find of a trail ever having crossed the river here shows up on the 1904 USGS map for the area.

Of course, that particular paddling guide was originally published in the 70s- and I can't imagine that the Cold River is a stretch that was re-paddled prior to each new edition. So what was once easy to find back then could very well be permanently lost to history by now.
