Terry Mountain State Forest [PDF] [PNG]  

Map uploaded on October 11, 2017.

Terry Mountain consists of two State Forest Areas, Clinton 3 and 4. This area contains Mud Pond, Military Pond and a main access road called the Red Road. The Mud Pond Road (Patent Road or Military Pond Road on old maps) which accesses portions of the area is no longer maintained by the Town. When the Town stopped maintaining the road, one family gated the road since they were maintaining it to access their property. This Road is also the public access for Mud Pond and Military Pond. A new multi‐use trail for snowmobiling and silvicultural activities called the Cliff Trail will be built to connect Military and Mud Pond with the Red Road. A second multi‐use trail for snowmobiling and silvicultural activities has been laid out and will be built to connect the Cliff Trail and Red Road with the Tower Road. This new trail will be called the Summit Trail. For the use of the facilities on this state forest to be maximized by the public, the Mastic gate must be removed, since it blocks the only legal access to one side of the trails. The Military Pond Road would provide a Snowmobile trail from Fern Lake to Peru utilizing a section of Terry Mountain State Forest from Military Pond past Mud Pond to the Red Road where it intersects with the town’s Manix Road. Sections of trail along the Red Road will be
included as small ski and bike loops.
