Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan
The 3,700 acre Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest (SRMWF) is located in the eastern Adirondacks, near Lake Champlain in the towns of Essex and Westport, Essex County. The Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest consists of several geographical-linked units within a ten mile radius of each other; Split Rock Mountain - including the Lake Champlain Palisades, Webb Royce Swamp, the Westport Boat Launch Site, and the Whallonsburg Fishing Access Site. The area offers numerous recreational opportunities, including hiking, camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing and hunting in the warmer months, and cross country skiing, ice climbing, trapping and snowmobiling in the winter months.
The Department completed a Unit Management Plan for the Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest in May 2005. If you have questions or comments about the UMP, please email us at: email@example.com.
