A well-kept secret in the western part of Rensselaerville. Minimal signage, best approached on Cheese Hill Road from County Route 358 or State Route 145 (Preston Hollow), or from Gulf Road off County Route 353. The area has several hilly, narrow seasonal roads--not for the faint of heart. The multi-use trails aren't blazed but are indicated by "Motor Vehicle Trail" signs. Recreation in this beautiful forest includes hunting, trapping, fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, nature observation, and birdwatching.
