McDonough State Forest

McDonough State Forest is located ten miles west of Norwich, in the gently rolling hills of the Allegheny Plateau. A number of recreational opportunities are available on McDonough State Forest. Both the Finger Lakes Trail and the New York State Corridor Snowmobile Trail pass through the forest, and many of the unpaved town roads are ideal for mountain biking and horseback riding. Whaley's Pond, Bowman Creek, Mill Brook and some of their smaller tributaries offer good fishing opportunities, and the upland woods support diverse wildlife populations. For good food, drink and local news, make a stop in the hamlets of McDonough and East McDonough. Bowman Lake State Park adjoins McDonough State Forest and both the Finger Lakes Trail and the snowmobile trail cross from the stat forest into the State park. Bowman Lake State Park provides camping, swimming and other developed recreational activities and facilities.
