Dry Brook Ridge Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan

The Dry Brook Ridge Wild Forest is made up of four non-contiguous Forest Preserve parcels in the western Catskill Park. For a combined total of 8,900 acres, these parcels are located in the Towns of Andes and Middletown in Delaware County, and the Town of Hardenburgh in Ulster County. The unit is made up of rugged, mountainous land, most of which is moderate to steep in grade. The area is primarily used by the public for hunting, fishing and hiking.

For a description of recreational opportunities in the unit, please visit the Dry Brook Ridge Wild Forest recreation page.

Status of the UMP

The Department adopted a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Dry Brook Ridge Wild Forest in 1988. If you have questions regarding the UMP, please contact us at r3.ump@dec.ny.gov.
