The Dry Brook Ridge Wild Forest is an 8,500-acre unit of Forest Preserve in the northern part of the Catskill Park. Located primarily in the Town of Middletown in Delaware County, the area is characterized as rugged, mountainous land, most of which is moderate to steep in grade. The highest elevation in the unit is located on the Dry Brook Ridge (3460 feet).

One of the primary trailheads in the unit provides access to the Dry Brook Ridge trail, and lies just outside of the hamlet of Margaretville on Side Road. Additional trails in the unit include the Huckleberry South Trail off of Huckleberry Brook Road, and the German Hollow Trail, accessed from Chris Long Road.
