The forest is situated in southwestern Vermont in the town of Sandgate, within a heavily forested and mountainous region that sits between Route 153 to the northwest, Route 315 to the north, Routes 30 & 7A to the east, Route 313 to the south and the NY state line 3.5 miles to the west. While forestland dominates the landscape here, widely scattered homes occur along some of the gravel roads that traverse this area. The location is host to notable mountain peaks that include; Equinox, Bear, Shatterack, Mother Myrick and The Gallop Mountains. The well known fly fishing river Batten Kill is just to the south. The eastern boarder of this region is a popular four season tourist area, starting in the south along Route 7A at Arlington (10 miles from the land). Just north is Manchester Village host of Hildene - The Lincoln Family home, The Equinox Hotel and Orvis Fly Fishing School. Traveling a short ways further north is Dorset with its many fine homes. Bromley Ski Resort is a 45 minute drive from the property. For weekend travelers, Albany, NY is 1.25 hour drive, NYC a 3.5 hour drive, and Boston a 3.25 hour drive. The timber resource consists of nearly pure hardwoods, on primarily well drained sites, characteristic of the classic Toconic soil types present on the land. Species composition includes The Maples, Birches, ash, oak, cherry, and widely scattered white pines. Fully stocked conditions exist with overstory trees in the 85, 65 and 25 year age classes.
