Stewart State Forest
Stewart State Forest, located in the Orange County towns of New Windsor, Montgomery and Hamptonburg, and the village of Maybrook, offers many recreational opportunities, including hiking, hunting, mountain biking, fishing, dog training and trials, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and bird watching. This 6,700-acre property has over 40 miles of roads and trails that make it a premier outdoor destination. Farm fields, grasslands, forests of all ages and sizes, as well as diverse wetlands and ponds support diverse wildlife, including increasingly rare grass, shrub and wetland species. About 5,100 acres of Stewart State Forest were first transferred to DEC in 1999 by the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT), followed by an additional 1,600 acres east of Maple Avenue in June 2006.
