Maple Hill State Forest [PDF] [PNG]  

Map uploaded on Thursday.

Recreational opportunities in this forest focus on rustic experiences with a limited amount of development. Most of this forest will require significant walking to access.

Hunting and trapping are permitted on the property in accordance with all game regulations, unless otherwise posted. Traps may not be set on public road right of ways. Body gripping traps set on land must be at least 100 feet from public trails. Permanent tree stands are prohibited. However, a tree stand or blind is allowed, provided that it does not injure any trees, is properly marked or tagged with the owner's name and address or valid hunting or fishing license number, and is placed and used during big game season, migratory game bird season, or turkey season, but no more than thirty days in one location per calendar year.

Geo-caching is allowed although caches must be marked with the owner's contact information and may not be placed in dangerous or ecologically sensitive locations.

As this is a fairly recent addition to the State Forest System, there are significant portions of this forest occupied by open fields. These fields provide for critical habitat diversity, and will be maintained in their present state.
