Dix Mountain Wilderness - Unit Management Plan

This area is in the towns of Elizabethtown, Keene and North Hudson, Essex County. It is roughly bounded on the north by Route 73, on the east by the Adirondack Northway, on the south by Blue Ridge Road and on the west by Elk Lake and AuSable Club lands. The terrain is rough, rocky and mountainous, with several of the mountain tops exceeding 4,000 feet. Twelve small ponds with a total surface area of about 92 acres, lie in the wilderness. Vertical cliffs of considerable height arc common, particularly in the northern and eastern parts.

A Unit Management Plan for the Dix Mountain Wilderness Area was completed in January 2004. If you have questions and/or comments about this UMP, please email us at: r5.ump@dec.ny.gov
