Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan
The Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest (VMWF) is located in the central Adirondack Park and is made up of almost 2 dozen non-contiguous parcels, covering almost 92,000 acres. VMWF borders or contains 44 ponds and small lakes, as well as portions of the Hudson River and much of the Boreas River. The unit's namesake measures 3,386 ft., making it the fourth highest peak in the unit and the highest with a developed foot trail.
The Department completed a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest in 2005. If you have questions or comments on the UMP, please email us at: email@example.com.

2015 Amendment - Community Connector Trail Plan
The primary purpose of the Community Connector Trail Plan (Plan) was the selection of a preferred location for proposed community connector multiple use trails between the towns of Newcomb, Minerva and North Hudson. The Plan also proposed the construction of a bridge near Palmer Pond and the reconfiguration of camping in several locations within the unit. The Plan amended several UMPs, including Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest.
