75 acres within the Adirondack Park and adjoins state land in the Town of Russia
This totally wooded parcel is just inside the “Blue Line”, bounded on three sides by the State of NY, and a stones throw from Hinckley Reservoir (the City of Utica’s water supply). This parcel has not been harvested for a very long time. Access is from the seasonally maintained Barnhart Road extension, then across a section of the ‘old highway’ which is neither closed nor impeded, which the state considers as access to the public lands beyond. If the 75 acres is not enough land to quench the thirst of the most avid outdoor enthusiast in your family, this parcel is bounded by the 121,000 acre Black River Wild Forest of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. Those that thrive upon connecting with the wildness of the Adirondacks would enjoy the isolated nature of an area that is lightly traversed by others. Hunting, fishing, trapping and hiking are some of the most common activities enjoyed by other landowners in this region. Wildlife often seek shelter on lands of the state, but travel to privately owned, harvested lands for additional food sources. Owning this property you could have the best of both worlds! The nearby Hinckley Reservoir is one of many major attractions in this area, providing opportunities for swimming, boating, fishing, and even fireworks on the fourth of July. The property is ~10 miles from Remsen and 27 miles away from Utica the closest city. So, if you have always desired a personal connection to thousands of acres of remote state forest, this property you most definitely want to see. The owner is moving from the area and ready to make a deal!
