Corbine Truck Trail in Bonaparte's Cave State Forest

Olympic Byway, County Rt. 3, near Harrisville in Lewis County

As its name would indicate, this 1,435 acre state forest and the surrounding countryside have historical roots tied to Napoleon Bonaparte.

Napoleon Bonaparte's brother and his family escaped from Europe to this area after his famous brother was arrested. It is said that they eluded hired assassins by hiding out in the rocky ledges and small caves on the northwest edge of what is today known as Green Pond. The 0.8 mile Corbine Forest Access Road is an extension of the Corbine town road and provides vehicular access to this forest westerly from the Hands Flats Road.
