157.8 acres bordering NYS Wild Forest on the south-western fringe of the Adirondacks in the Town of Ohio
If you are looking for a place to enjoy the wilderness of the Adirondacks just inside the ‘blue line’ this may be just the place for you. Seasonal access is via the Christman Road Spur Road maintenance ends roughly a quarter mile from the property boundary. Two tributaries to Mounts Creek bisect the property, one north and one south of the access road. A series of established woods roads and trails allow access and mobility by foot, snowshoes, snowmobile, skis, ATV or 4wd vehicle. There are plenty of excellent settings where one might choose to build a small camp or cabin. A 3 lot subdivision of the parcel, with cabin construction specifications, was approved by the APA in 2006. A great way for family and friends to enjoy the area together, without overcrowding a single cabin. The 70% hardwood, 30% softwood forest was lightly thinned approximately 10 years ago. Areas regenerated nicely to preferred species including: black cherry, yellow birch, hard and soft maple, and American beech. Hemlock is concentrated in the wetter area and pockets of spruce and fir are scattered about. Older trees could be harvested in 10 to 15 years, making this property a good investment for future revenue. Large and small game species that frequent this property are sure to include: deer, bear, turkey, grouse and woodcock, as well as numerous fowl species. Borders NYS in the northeast corner. For those looking for larger bodies of, the West Canada Creek and Hinckley Reservoir are only 15 minutes away. Just 50 minutes north of Herkimer and the NYS Thruway. Snowmobile trail C4 is accessible from the property.
