Harbor Creek Drive, off NYS Route 3, is a year 'round, hard packed stone road which was built to Town specifications. It is currently a private drive maintained by the seller. The seller agrees to maintain the existing road to the southern border of the 10 Lot Subdivision until January 1, 2025.

Stony Creek is one of the most attractive features of this lot offering a beautiful view, easy access and an incredible vantage point to observe the wild inhabitants (including deer, beaver, herons, fox, eagles, hawks and numerous songbirds to name a few) that utilize the resources of this area. The Creek is a 'Public Fishing Stream' which gives anglers the right to walk along the bank, for fishing only. The most popular fish species are Chinook (King) and Coho Salmon, Steelhead and Rainbow Trout. The predominate tree species along the bank of the creek include: hickory, basswood, sugar and red maple, red oak and hemlock.
