Delaware Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan
The Delaware Wild Forest is comprised of 27,800 acres of Forest Preserve land in the western-most part of the Catskill Park, falling within the counties of Delaware, Sullivan and Ulster. The unit is characterized by mountainous terrain, with grades ranging from moderate to steep. Approximately 33 miles of foot trails and 22 miles of snowmobile trails run through the Delaware Wild Forest, and ample opportunity for other recreational opportunities and solitude exist within the unit as well.
2008 Catskill Park State Land Master Plan
In August 2008, DEC finalized the revision of the Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (CPSLMP). In the CPSLMP, the Delaware Wild Forest was designated through the re-classification of two other Forest Preserve units: the Cherry Ridge-Campbell Mountain Wild Forest and the Middle Mountain-Mary Smith Hill Wild Forest. In 1988, a Unit Management Plan (UMP) was completed for the Cherry Ridge-Campbell Mountain Wild Forest, and in 1987 a Unit Management Plan (UMP) was completed for the Middle Mountain-Mary Smith Hill Wild Forest. If you have questions or would like to obtain a copy of either UMP, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
