Stewart State Forest
The 6700-acres of Stewart State Forest are unique in the northeast and increasingly rare in the Hudson Valley. A mix of wetlands, fields and woods, the site includes 18 miles of gravel roads and over 22 miles of major trails which provide unparalleled recreation - hiking, biking, horseback riding, hunting, dog training and trials, skiing, snowmobiling, bird watching and fishing. Old farm fields take you to an earlier gentler time in our nation's history.

Please note that unless specifically posted as foot trails, all trails on the property are multiple use trails. Roadways on Stewart State Forest are accessible by car for people with disabilities, but a permit must first be obtained from DEC. Special arrangements must be made to obtain combinations for entry at selected gates.
