Wilcox Lake Wild Forest - Draft Unit Management Plan

The Wilcox Lake Wild Forest is located in the southeastern area of the Adirondack Park and is made up of approximately 140,000 acres of Forest Preserve lands in Warren, Hamilton, Saratoga and Fulton Counties. Nearby communities include Stony Creek, Thurman, Bakers Mills, Day, Wells, Hope Falls, and Northville. The unit is generally bounded on the north by State Route 8, on the east by the Hudson River, on the south by the Adirondack Park Blue Line, and on the west by State Route 30.

Status of the UMP

The Department released a Draft Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Wilcox Lake Wild Forest in 2006, and is currently developing a Revised Draft UMP for public review and comment. If you have questions about the UMP process, please e-mail us at:
