Map: Grant Powell State Forest

This 8,077-acre state forest is named after the first state district forester appointed to the Lewis-Jefferson County area. He was instrumental in most of the original local state land acquisition projects that formed the basis for the state forests that exist here today. A memorial plaque and small parking site established by his friends and co-workers can be seen along the south side of State Route 177. Adjoining this state forest to the south is the Tug Hill Wildlife Management Area that contains more than 5,000 acres of public land dedicated to the enhancement of native wildlife. Every winter large numbers of snowmobilers and cross country skiers journey to the North Country to enjoy the deep winter snow conditions of this state forest and adjacent properties.
