This 1,116 acre state forest bears the name of the trout stream that flows southerly through the area. The Lewis-Oswego County line forms part of the forest's western boundary. The majority of the landscape is covered with a relatively mature mixture of hard maple, red maple, black cherry, and white ash.

White-tailed deer hunting, trout fishing, woodland hiking, and snowmobiling are all recreational pursuits enjoyed here. Access to Stony Creek on the south section of this forest is provided by the 0.1 mile Stony Brook public access road.


From Boonville, take Route 294 west 6.6 miles to West Leyden. Turn left on State Route 26 then a quick right on Route 46. Go 16 miles to Osceola, turn right on North Osceola Road, proceed 8 miles.
