Cedarlands Easement Rec Plan Issued

cedarlands conservation easementThe New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has issued the final recreation management plan (RMP) for Cedarlands Conservation Easement Tract in Hamilton County.

Located in Hamilton County, in the town of Long Lake, the 4,890-acre Cedarlands Conservation Easement Tract was acquired by the DEC in 2002. DEC worked with private landowners and land managers to develop public access on these lands they felt protected natural resources and retained timber management jobs. The easement remains a working forest and includes a summer residential camp and the 397-acre McRorie Lake.

The final plan enhances recreational opportunities and provides improved access. The RMP identifies planned facilities, including improved access for persons with disabilities. This includes providing accessible parking, canoe carry trails, water access sites, campsites, and motor vehicle access through the Motorized Access Program for People with Disabilities (MAPPWD); abd

  • Increased camping opportunities with new designated campsites;
  • Improved parking at the parking area on Kickerville Lane;
  • Maintained hiking trails to Mud Pond Mountain and Rock Pond Mountain;
  • New loop trail around McRorie Lake; and
  • Designated mountain bike use on certain trails; and more.

For more information on the long-term plan for public recreation activities and opportunities, continued access on the eased property, proposed and existing infrastructure, and natural and human history, download the final RMP for the Cedarlands Conservation Easement Tract.
