The property is completely wooded with an excellent mix of hardwoods and softwoods with hard maple, soft maple, red oak, beech, white pine, hemlock, hickory, aspen, red pine, Norway spruce and more providing ample cover and feed for wildlife. Timber was cut a year ago focused on the mature and over-mature red oak that was present here.
The timber harvest reclamation activities provided an excellent network of freshly bulldozed trails throughout the property with one continuous loop from north to south and auxiliary trails in-between. After the roads harden after this season, they will be great for ATV’s, hunting, hiking and more. Most are in good shape now while others will need the summer and winter to solidify them again.
The thinning has created abundant feed for deer with new lush growth coming on this season as well as providing bedding cover among the residual tops from the logging operation. Deer and turkey sign is abundant and tracks are found throughout the property. The residual white pine and hemlock make excellent roost trees for turkey along with some of the spruce and maple. This area is known for quality deer hunting. Expect grouse to come feed on the aspens as the ground cover thickens!
The abundant road frontage coupled with three (3) clearings made by the seller provide ample room to build a camp, home or pull in a camper or multiple campers. There are also openings within the property that would make great food plot locations as well.
Folsom Creek is the east boundary of the majority of the property. This is a full-time flowing slate bottom stream and will be a highlight on any friends or family outing. The gorge-like walls provide a feeling of total seclusion where all you can hear is the stream flowing and the birds chirping.
The property is less than 2 miles from thousands of acres of NYS Land, minutes to the area snowmobile trails and close to both Chautauqua Lake and Lake Erie too!
