South Bradford State Forest

The 1,819-acre South Bradford State Forest features a portion of the Finger Lakes Hiking Trail and is the northern end of the Crystal Hills Branch Hiking Trail. This forest also has significant mineral activity, visitors should expect to see natural gas wellheads and pipelines. Today, South Bradford and all state forests in New York are managed for multiple benefits to serve the needs of the people of New York. Sustainable management practices will ensure a perpetual supply of timber, a diversity of wildlife habitats, compatible recreational opportunities and clean water.

Located on the area is a portion of the Finger Lakes Trail and Crystal Hills Branch Trail (both foot traffic only). Maintenance is done by the volunteers of the Finger Lakes Trail Conference (leaves DEC website) under a Volunteer Stewardship Agreement. The Finger Lakes Trail is a segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail (leaves DEC website) a 3200-mile trail which extends from New York to North Dakota, and the Crystal Hills Branch Trail is a segment of the Great Eastern Trail (leaves DEC website) which, when finished, will end in Alabama.

The South Bradford Lean-to is located at the intersection of the Finger Lakes Trail and the Crystal Hills Trail. At-large primitive camping is also allowed in this unit. Campsites must be at least 150 feet away from the nearest road, trail, or body of water. Camping for more than three nights or in groups of ten or more requires a permit from a Forest Ranger.
