West Kill Valley 

Photo uploaded on September 8, 2016.

The 1617 acre Leonard Hill State Forest is located near Broome Center in southeastern Schoharie County. The main feature is an old fire tower that still stands on the summit of the 2605 foot Leonard Hill. The bottom steps of the fire tower have been removed, so there is no way to climb the tower. A 1.6 mile truck trail leads to a overlook and the fire tower. The view includes the Blenheim-Gilboa Reservoir and Utsayantha Mountain in the distance. There are a couple of primitive campsites located near the fire tower.
