100 acres of forested land near Beartown State Forest in the Town of Croghan
What a great area to live and play in if you love the outdoors. Rock laden fence lines, moss covered granite outcrops, abandoned farm fields and pastures, and plenty of water, best describe the features of this parcel. Pioneer species such as Grey birch, ironwood, cherry, apple, white pine and service-berry cover the high ground, while a variety of native grasses, quaking aspen meadow-sweet and alder are found in more open and wet areas. In addition to the ever present beaver on properties in this area, white-tailed deer, black bear, snowshoe hair, ruffed grouse, woodcock, an occasional bobcat and waterfowl of all kinds are abundant. Walk a short distance east or west to enjoy all the attributes of the 7,211 acre Beartown State Forest, which offers a variety of recreational opportunities including: horseback riding, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, trapping, cross country skiing and hiking. Roughly 940′ of frontage with electric available on the Texas Road permits one to choose the best of several building sites for a camp or cabin, or to subdivide and sell a lot or two. Or, if seclusion is more your stile, head back in the woods further on the graveled, deeded right-of-way, and build a structure to your liking. A survey of the property was conducted in 2005. The Texas road is open to ATV’s, and just a short mile to the east jump on snowmobile trail C5 and head west towards Tug Hill or east towards the Adirondacks. Spend a few hours on this property and you’ll find it real easy to justify owning a place in the country where you can enjoy it all!
