Oak Ridge State Forest

Oak Ridge State Forest is located northeast of the village of Afton. It is a hilltop forest, except on the eastern side, where there is a 300± foot deep ravine that mother nature carved with a small stream flowing off the hilltop. The most common visitors to the forests are hunter and woodland hikers. Purchased with Hewitt Amendment funds in the 1930's, the State Forest is a blend of planted forests of red pine, larch and Norway spruce, and natural forest stands consisting mostly of red maple, red oak, chestnut oak, white oak, American beech, white ash, hickories, white pine and eastern hemlock. The plantations were mostly planted by Civil Conservation Corps in the 1930's.
