Northern Chenango Highlands Unit

The Northern Chenango Highlands Unit is located within the Towns of Lincklaen, Otselic, Pitcher and Smyrna in the northwestern corner of Chenango County. The Unit is bisected by NYS Route 26 before it merges into NYS Route 80 in the Hamlet of Otselic. The four lands that comprise this UMP are: Beaver Meadow, Lincklaen, Bucks Brook, and Otselic State Forests.

This management unit is named the Northern Chenango Highlands because it has some of the highest elevations found in Chenango County. The lowest elevation on the Unit is 1,280 feet above sea level at the Otselic River in Otselic State Forest.
