Chazy Highlands Management Complex - Unit Management Plan

The Chazy Highlands Management Complex is comprised of approximately 36,800 acres of state land in Clinton and Franklin Counties. Included in the unit are 26,900 acres of Forest Preserve, 8,600 acres of State Forest, and 1,300 acres of Wildlife Management Area. The Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan classifies all of these lands as Wild Forest. In addition to state-owned land, the unit includes 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.

The Department is currently in the early phases of developing a Unit Management Plan for the Chazy Highlands Management Complex. If you have questions about the UMP process, please email Region 5 UMP.
