Overlook Mountain Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan

The Overlook Mountain Wild Forest is a small area of approximately 590 acres in the Town of Woodstock, Ulster County, bordering the 16,800 acre Indian Head Wilderness. The unit is being managed separately from the adjacent Wilderness area since it contains a parking lot, four towers (three private, one fire tower), several buildings, mountain house ruins, and several roads. The summit of Overlook Mountain is one of the top three most visited locations in the Catskill Forest Preserve (After Slide Mountain and North-South Lake).

The Department completed a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Overlook Mountain Wild Forest in 1999.
