Chazy Highlands Management Complex - Unit Management Plan

The Chazy Highlands Management Complex is comprised of approximately 62,000 acres of State-owned lands and conservation easements in Clinton and Franklin Counties. Included in the unit are 48,100 acres of Forest Preserve, 9,600 acres of State Forest, and 2,300 acres of Wildlife Management Area and 1,900 acres of privately-owned lands with conservation easements held by the state.

The Chazy Highlands has very few developed recreational facilities. Recreational activities which do occur in the unit include hunting, fishing, and hiking. State Routes 3 and 374 bisect the area, providing access to the facilities and resources. Important local roads for access include County Route 26 (Old Route 99), Standish Road, and Plank Road.

Status of the UMP

The Department is currently developing a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Chazy Highlands Management Complex. If you have questions about the UMP process, please e-mail Region 5 UMP.
