Black River Wild Forest
The Black River Wild Forest is located in the south-western foothills of the Adirondack Park.
The Black River Wild Forest unit is comprised of over 121,000 acres of Forest Preserve lands in Herkimer, Lewis, Hamilton, and Oneida counties, south of Route 28, north of Route 8 and west of the Adirondack League Club holdings. The Black River flows in a generally east-west direction through the middle of the area. A considerable number of interior, privately-owned parcels exist to which jeep trails extend from the public highways. Relatively low hills interspersed with small swamp areas covered with second growth hardwoods on the more fertile soils and spruce-fir combinations along water courses are typical in this southwestern corner of the Park. The streams attract many trout fishermen to the area. South Lake is a favorite fishing, hunting and boating spot.
