Property Types: Residential
New York wooded land located in southern Adirondacks for sale: This Adirondack parcel is located in northern Warren County, on South Johnsburg Road, ~1.5 miles from the center of Johnsburg and only 15 minutes from Gore Mountain. This property has 350 feet of frontage on South Johnsburg Road (a 4-season paved road), with electric available at the road.
The lot is level, visually-pleasing, and developable. The entire 8.79 surveyed acres are forested, with red maple, hemlock, birch, and spruce-fir. This parcel has not been harvested in at least 15 years, since the current owner has owned the property. The mature forest cover offers seclusion, peace and quiet, and the opportunity to experience a big-woods feel on an affordable Adirondack woodlot.
The Town of Johnsburg boasts over 130,000 acres of Forever Wild State Forest Preserve, including the Siamese Ponds Wilderness, which is a 114,000-acre tract of forest preserve offering 50 miles of marked trails and an additional 30 miles of unmarked foot paths mostly used by hunters and anglers. Trail destinations include mountain peaks and primitive camp sites located on back country waters. One could walk through this unbroken tract for days and not encounter roads or any other human features.
The property is approximately 1.6 miles from a snowmobile trailhead that is part of the Thurman Connection network of trails, containing 79 miles of trails within Johnsburg, Thurman, and Stony Creek, as well as connecting to trails leading to Speculator, Piseco, and the West Canada Lakes Wilderness in Hamilton County.
Visible from the road frontage to the north is Gore Mountain, the area’s largest downhill skiing attraction, located only 8 miles away in North Creek. All the necessary amenities can be found in North Creek, including Gore Mountain Ski Resort, dining, groceries, shopping, auto repair facilities, and other tradesmen.
