New York vacant wooded land with 2,600 feet of frontage on Glen Creek a stocked trout stream and adjacent to State Forest Preserve for sale. With ~2,600 feet of frontage along Glen Creek, a stocked trout stream, and immediate access to 475 acres of State Forest Preserve, the Glen Creek Trout Lands provides an opportunity to own the "complete package" of Adirondack property, checking all of the boxes. With over 2,000 feet of road frontage on Rte. 28 and electric at the road, it's an ideal location for a camp or second home.Glen Creek is the most significant feature on the property, originating ~8.5 miles upstream from Little Pond, in the Town of Thurman, proceeding through private and public lands, and becoming a 30 to 50-foot-wide creek with rapids, pools, and cascades before entering the Hudson River only 500' from the property. Glen Creek is stocked annually by the NYS DEP from Dippikill Road to Route 28, which includes this property's frontage. This past year, 540 brown trout were stocked in mid-April.Glen Creek Trout Lands is adjacent to 475 acres of State Forest Preserve, open to the public for hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping. The new owner of this property will be able to walk right onto State land and chase bucks and birds, climb Dippikill Mountain, and fish Glen Creek.Decades of professional forest stewardship have promoted timber quality and diversity, as well as varied habitat for many wildlife species. The hemlock and pine trees offer important thermal cover for wintering deer, and the red oak trees contribute acorns as a critical food source for deer, bear, and turkey. Tracks, scat, and buck rubs indicate abundant deer activity. Limited canopy openings have been created during forestry operations, leading to a flush of ground-level growth beneficial to wildlife.The property is under the Fisher 480 forest tax law, which provides a handsome reduction in taxes, while being less burdensome than its 480a tax law successor. Fisher 480 carries a very low administrative burden; there is no requirement to hire a forester or develop a forest management plan as with 480a. The only requirement is that the landowner pay a 6% severance tax on the timber stumpage yield from timber sales. The Glen Creek Trout Lands is located only 9 miles from both Warrensburg and Chestertown and 12 miles from Gore Mountain and North Creek, so all of the necessities are close at hand. It is under an hour from Saratoga Springs, 1.25 hours from Albany, and ~4 hours from New York City.
